If a person is FIT. Doesn’t that means, they should “look” the part? If they don’t look the part does that mean, they aren’t trying hard enough or they are lying about their journey to be fit?
Is that true? What does a “fit” person really look like?
Has there ever been a time that you were so desperate to “look” like you lost weight, look fitter, look leaner, look like you work out; you said, “What the hell, this may be crazy but what is it going to hurt, nothing else seems to be helping me, to look like l am fit and in shape”?
And if you did, what was the outcome, did it work or not?
I totally get it, I once used Preparation H to reduce the cellulite on the back of my thighs and butt. No I didn’t have hemorrhoids on the outside of my body, it was me trying to “look” like I was fit and it was a desperate attempt to get rid of my dimply thighs and ass.
And the funny thing was I weighted 108 lbs maybe 10-12% Body fat and still only focused on the cellulite that I saw every time I would look in the mirror.
Fast forward to today and I still have the cellulite, weigh a lot more than 108 lbs., probably have a lot more cellulite in other places, but I no longer apply Preparation H to the outside of my thighs and butt or wherever, to get rid of it.
Does that mean that I don’t care that I am not trying to be better because I have cellulite?
Or maybe I should try harder to get rid of it, because a person who works out and takes care of themselves shouldn’t have cellulite, right?
What if you are fitter, healthier, stronger, leaner than you have ever been; BUT you still don’t “look” like the “ideal” societal image of a “fit” person… Does that mean that you are not doing your best?
Does that mean you need to work that much harder to achieve that “idea” of a fit person?
Or does that mean that you should just throw in the towel, why bother really, if you are never going to “look” the part?
Or maybe you should continue to hide your efforts from those around you (lather up with Preparation H, wear appropriate clothing to cover yourself) because “who wants to see THAT” …
If you are ready to break free from this struggle… Here is what you can do starting today to help you move forward
Stop applying Preparation H to your butt and thighs,
Stop hiding yourself in the “appropriate” clothing for your size,
Start celebrating your efforts and those around you
Because EVERYONE NEEDS TO SEE THAT!

I am helping women change their story they play in their head everyday. You should never resign yourself if you are not living your true self and purpose. As a female entrepreneur and fitness professional, My own story has many ups and downs which started more than 33 years ago as a 12 year old bullied for her big butt. My 12 year old self started her own personal plan, started the fire and the uphill climb to overcome her imperfect self. The plot and the story thickened when my body gave out on me in my 20's diagnosed with fibromyalgia and hypothyroidism As a worn down just barely married woman, I needed to reclaim my youth through weight lifting and eating for me. It took those health issues to help me find my way back to rewrite my story. I use this journey and personal experiences of many ups and downs in health, to work right beside my clients to help them achieve their best self. Today I work right beside the women I meet to teach them that they do count and they do have a purpose.
