Success Stories- Cynthia and Renea

 In Nutrition, Success Stories

The last 45 days are not about what I’ve lost, but more about what I’ve gained. Sure, losing weight and body fat was awesome, but what I gained was much more important. I am able to commit to my health for more than 3 days. I realize the power of planning and preparation. I can finally trust myself. I found that life is full of non-eatable rewards. I can enjoy holidays without caving. I understand my body performs better when I fuel it properly. I can be successful and I can live without guilt. I read somewhere (I think the Whole 9 Facebook page) that during a strict nutrition challenge food becomes both more important and less important. How profound!

I found this challenge to be life changing in the very real way that I finally stopped in my tracks and faced my food issues head-on.   Using food to self medicate for any situation whether it be boredom, exhaustion, sadness, stress, has been my way of life for so long that in this challenge I realized I had lost total sense of just eating when I feel hunger.   What an amazing concept, right?  And even more revolutionary, lol, stopping eating when my body says, I’m good.   I am so grateful to have had this opportunity to do the work and face my life without numbing myself out.  What I gained from this experience is kind of intangible, hard for me to put in words but when I say it has been a game changer, I feel that truth in my bones.
Thank you, Courtney for your knowledge and expertise and breaking it all down to ‘It’s just food’.
