It’s not about the thigh gap or the hip bridge or any other ‘skinny’ visual you’ve seen on social media. I used to look at my legs and think genes screwed me! Why do my legs applaud when I walk?
But if I measure myself to the standard of unrealistic ideals, I will always be disappointed. I don’t want to live like that!
I chose to be healthy and happy. Sure, I want to look nice in my clothes but not by unhealthy means.
I did lose quite a bit of weight after going raw vegan, but it was never my #1 goal. It was exciting to see my tightest jeans actually fit, as they were in the donate pile, even though I so wanted to keep them.
Honestly, I just wanted to stop being chronically bloated after every meal. I used to fear being out too long because IBS pretty much dictated my waistline and comfort level.
My husband had even more serious issues and I wanted to help him with the burden of his symptoms from Crohn’s. I buried myself in recipe searching, trying to find the foods that he could tolerate. I totally had my work cut out for me because not only was his gut in major pain, but he was also a very picky eater. Talk about a narrow list of options!
Today what you see are two healthy, slimmed down, happy people. Symptom free!! It was a journey we had to take one meal at a time, one good decision at a time. It was so worth it!
