My story in a nut shell 🥜: I was a burned out, depressed, overweight teacher who emotionally ate anytime anything got hard. I couldn’t get through a day without crying, and you were lucky if you saw me with anywhere except my classroom, my bed, or the 405 freeway. I hated the way I looked but didn’t know how to change it. I was addicted to quick fixes: anything that would make me skinnier faster, I tried. (Go figure, none of it worked). I started shopping online cause the thought of stepping into a dressing room would put me into a panic attack. I told myself “it’s not that bad” until one day I went to the doctor and when I left, I left with a note saying “Find a new job, and take care of yourself.” A year ago, you would have seen a completely different Kate than you see today. —————————
Today, because I decided to focus on MYSELF and MY HEALTH first, above all else, I am truly the best version of myself and getting better everyday. I no longer binge eat cause I’m tired or sad, I have lost over 20 pounds and three pants sizes, and I have more mental clarity than I have had in YEARS. I am the busiest I have every been, but I am also the HAPPIEST I’ve ever been because for once, I said YES to me. I said YES to 30 minute daily workouts, a simple nutrition plan that doesn’t deprive me, and an accountability group full of people who are my tribe to help keep me on track. ————————
Many of you don’t know my story, and I’m sure more of you than I know relate to it. I’m thinking about sharing it either here LIVE or on my stories. I just want the other Kate’s out there to know, you’re not alone. I’ve been there too. 🤷🏻♀️ Which would you prefer? Tell my story LIVE or through my IG stories?! Comment below!
