I have struggled with weight and body images all my life.
When I was 15 kilos less than I am today, I always felt, and somehow let people make me feel unattractive and “fat”.
But even back then, I wasn’t as “skinny” as most of the girls around me.
I will never be a size 0. And now, well into my 30s, I don’t want to be…
What I do want is to be healthy, for myself first, and definitely healthy for my family.
It’s true that I should love myself at any weight…but when there is the slightest chance it might affect my health… that’s when I knew it’s time a change.
I have been on MANY diet plans. Too many to count …
There have been so many “Starting my diet on Monday” moments, but never saw them through to the end… Can you relate?
Some amazing people have that strong motivation and internal drive to be able to lose excess weight, post-pregnancy weight so easily on their own … I wasn’t one of them…
But now that it has reached a point I am not as energetic as I was to play with my kids.
And going out is becoming a suffocation, as I feel I look horrible in anything I wear.
I decided I need help…
HEALTHY HAPPY ME
I first met with the amazing team from HEALTHY HAPPY US, when I was blessed to have them give a nutritional workshop in ELLE FIESTA 2015 (an event I organize yearly for women’s Education & Empowerment)
I have been wanting to lose weight for a while now, but not finding the motivation to take the appointment. After having coffee with my dear friend, nutritionist/dietitian, blogger and fellow super mama Mirna Sabbagh – she suggested I pass by HHU in Verdun for a quick consultation.
Just sitting with these amazing women makes you feel at ease. The positive energy they project is addictive.
We started with an InBody analysis test to find out how to start and where to proceed (areas that need working on etc). The machine checks your body composition in terms body water, protein, mineral and fat and these components should be well-balanced in a healthy body.
Analyzing the data with Rola, on of the founders of HHU, was comfortable.
Comfortable because I didn’t want someone to tell me I’m fat and that I had to lose X amount of weight…
I wanted someone to understand my lifestyle, and why I wanted to start a diet plan… and this is exactly what she did.
Why do you want to lose weight?
I simple question, but with a not-so-simple answer.
But understanding why you want to start the journey is the first step.
As per the machine I should lose 11.6 kg to reach my goal weight, but as per me, we will continue until I feel comfortable at the weight I want – and that’s something Rola stressed on.
In the end that’s the purpose of it … for a HEALTHIER HAPPIER ME 🙂
I’m starting this journey not because I don’t know what I should do, but because I need the support, compassion and motivation I am not finding on my own, to keep the weight loss continuity.
This is not a Challenge, but a Journey. (no more waiting for Monday to come 🙂 )
