Healthy Mind, Healthy Body

As I posted in my last post, self care was a critical part of my healing journey.  I recognized that I had a pattern of gaining weight during the winter months which tend to be a triggering time for me because of the grief.  While I love the holidays and my birthday they aren’t always joyous.  I would mask the emotions that accompany that time of year with comfort eating.  Fortunately, I was able to lose the weight by the spring each year, but with self care and lots of conscious work I was able to break the cycle by recognizing the WHY behind the overeating and allow myself to release the emotions that triggered it.  These pictures show the long and difficult journey towards healing not only physically, but emotionally and mentally too! *Top pictures are in July of each year and bottom pictures are in December of each year!*
