How to overcome fibroids and a negative self-image
I remember years back during my competition prep days exercising 6 days a week and eating clean about 6 times a day. One of the things I loved about my body, was my super tight waistline, and how it accentuated my body shape. Not too long after that, stress and anxiety started to set in. I stopped competing and exercising altogether. I pretty much ate what I was feeling. It left me with a negative self-image and fibroids. Since the start of my fibroid journey, my awareness of what I eat, do and who I surround myself with has heightened. I have been doing lots of research about inflammation, processed foods and how they are made and the foods that we consume nowadays.
Emotional eating brought me low energy, weight gain and the feeling of dis-ease. I was unaware of my feelings of inadequacy and toxic energy I was feeding myself. I noticed a relapse of fibroids due to my abdomen starting to get larger and an increase in urinary frequency. I decided to schedule a doctor’s appointment when I got the results that my fibroids grew so large in such a short period of time. I was in shock and determined to do something about it. Surgery was not an option for me. I decided to take action and start to ask myself ” what if ” there are other ways to conquer these crazy symptoms?
I mentally started to believe that if I started to take action on what I know, I may see relief and the pain would stop. Making a holistic lifestyle transformation has been nothing but a blessing.
I have more appreciation for my body, more confidence, a positive image of myself and feeling sexier than ever and most of all no more excruciating pain. I have learned to feel like a Queen, you have to believe you are one.
I am straight up enjoying life as of now! I have lived through the struggles of fibroids. Now, as a coach and advocate for women suffering from fibroids, I know first hand how to help others through this journey.
