Michelle’s story struck me when it said “I always felt fat.”
Lord, I said that a million times in my life. Both of us felt fat all our lives as we struggled with weight from young ages.
That gets beat into your head until you just believe it.
I asked her to share her story because, like me, she changed that belief. I went to saying things like…
“I can try this.”
“I just need to go back and learn more.”
“If this small changes works…maybe this will help, too.”
We both reframed our thinking to drop the weight. See, it wasn’t an exercise plan or diet that did it. What we did in our stories is change how we thought about things. When we noticed old “stories” of how we couldn’t do something we quickly said, “Nope…we now ask ourselves what CAN WE DO.”
Her story is inspiring. Enjoy!
