LADIES - call to action at the bottom! But first a story. 🦋 I recently got a check up and was weighed by a nurse. 🦋 I honestly haven’t stepped onto a scale in about 2 years. So I didn’t even know what to expect (nor did I think I’d care!). But... I stepped onto that scale & found out that I’m the heaviest I’ve ever been - the weight (according to that dang medical scale) is into the 200s. And for the rest of the day, all the hard work I’ve done to love my body & accept it & see beyond its parameters completely washed away. And I felt like CRAP. 😢 I began to tear every part of myself down. I began to lose hope in my ability to love myself at any size & in any condition. It got pretty dark for a bit, as our stumbles during recovery usually do. 😢 But then, I reminded myself of something very important - that at this physical size, I have been able to do every single gosh darn thing I did before at a smaller size. 🎉 Not once has being larger or heavier kept me from living my life fully or being active or having the energy to keep up with my enthusiastic toddler. 🎉 The funny thing is, all that pesky scale did was confront me like a bad ex-boyfriend. It annoyingly reminded me how easily I could merit my worth by the number on it - which I now realize is completely wasteful & literally impossible. 🌟 Because worth is something you are BORN WITH. 🌟 You can’t lose your worth. It never leaves you. And the moment I remembered how very worthy I am and always have been and always - ALWAYS - will be, I was able to get right back to loving the woman I see in the mirror - at exactly the size and shape she is. 🌈 So ladies - if you feel so inclined - please share one thing you LOVE about yourself that may have taken some time to love. 🌈💖Let’s keep the positivity & self-love going! 💖 . . . . . . . . #plussize #plussizefashion #bodypositive #effyourbeautystandards #motherhood #mombod #postpartumbody #bodypositivity #loveyourself #everybodyisbeatiful #youareworthy 23 ♡ 0 ✍ March 25

Ok guys! I’m getting SUPER vulnerable and REAL here! I don’t have many “before” pictures and never in a million years did I think I would want to share them. But I think it’s important for me to share part of the WHY and the HEART behind Nourishing Roots Nutrition. This was me, 60 lbs heavier, 10 years ago. But it’s not about the weight. I don’t want to make anyone feel like They need to lose weight or be a certain size to feel healthy and happy. The before picture is a reflection of what was going on inside. I wasn’t healthy, mentally or physically. I feel like the person in the before picture is a completely different person than who I am now. She suffered from postpartum depression, but never talked about it. She had anxiety and it kept her up at night. This new role as a mother spun her world upside down and she didn’t cope in the healthiest ways. She felt alone and isolated, and because of the feelings of depression she pulled in even more. Those years were hard! It was a long road, and often times not easy, but I fought and was determined to not stay where I was. I learned a lot along the way. That changes need to be consistent. And that there is no silver bullet. No magic weight loss cure, no way to just make mental illness go away. I also learned it’s not as easy as just eating well and exercising. I feel like every-time I had a breakthrough, there was another bridge to cross. Hormones, adrenal fatigue, digestive issues, candida, mindset, emotions. So moms, I want to say: I see you, feeling like you just don’t have the energy to make the changes, that it seems too daunting. I see you struggling to get out of bed and face the day. I see you feeling alone and needing connection. I see you worrying and fearing when there is seemingly no reason. YOU are the reason I made it my dream and vision to help people change their health. The key to my success was not a magic formula, but it was nourishing my body with proper nutrition and addressing root causes. It’s not a quick fix and I won’t say it’s an easy one either, but I do want to tell you there IS hope! I want to be to others what I wish I had during those years. 33 ♡ 4 ✍ March 25
