Everyone has a mountain to climb!

I turned 40 this year! I have struggled with my weight and anxiety for many years. I had stepped on the scale on June 21st, 2018 and cried. How did I let this happen? Luckily I had an appointment to see my doctor about antidepressants and my weight. (again) I also wanted to talk to her about going on a diet. (keto to be exact). As I was at a low (1 of many) I cried in her office. I had never weighed that much. I talk to the doctor about the keto diet and she informed me that we had had many conversations about diet and I never stuck to one. She told me I was a good candidate for weight-loss surgery. I had asked some questions took a pamphlet and said I’d check with our insurance. As I left that day I told myself I was going to do keto for six months one to prove her wrong(Because that’s what it was all about) but that if there was no results within six months I would do the surgery.

So I say this because this is just the start of the bottom of my mountain I had to climb.

I’m almost a year in and have lost 55 pounds! You maybe asking what does this have to do with trauma? Well, one of the ways I was dealing with my trauma was by overeating, not eating what was good for me. And becoming depressed. I wasn’t regulating my own emotions.

I’m not going to say what you should or shouldn’t do. I’m sharing some of my story or journey and what has helped me. I hope in sharing it may help you. Whether it’s just you knowing you’re not alone. I will get more into the trauma and what I do to work through it. Hopefully, you stick around for more to come!

I want to thank all my family and friends that continue to support me in this new journey with my Trauma informed yoga. Some ask or are hesitant to try yoga or support it. Many have said its buddhist.
