In my 20’s, I felt like I was 80!
Pre-diabetes, high cholesterol, severe allergies, sinuses, adrenal burn-out, anxiety, anemia, fainting episodes, IBS, & herniated discs were some of the issues I had. Ugggh, I thought the ’20s were supposed to be full of health & energy. My body kept giving me signs, but I wasn’t listening! I also worked heavy hours & had no work-life balance. I didn’t know how to handle stress well, at all.
I bashed my belly & played games with food
I wasn’t very comfortable with my weight & body image. I always hated my belly and other things about my body. I was eating “healthy” so I could reward myself with tastier and even junkier foods. I ate loads of stuff that was supposed to be healthy because I read it somewhere. But desserts were all I could think about! Let’s just say that I wasn’t in a healthy relationship with food. And nothing I was eating was good for my body!
Alas, the issues drifted!
Throughout my studies, I was able to overcome all of my health problems (well, except herniated disc lower back pain that comes & goes, but I’m still holding out for a permanent solution). I also finally learned to have peace in my life. Body image issues melted away, even after two kids. I feel much better and more energetic than I did even 15 years ago.
