I feel like most people start out on their “health” journey because they want to lose weight. I know that’s what first propelled me into the world of health and fitness.
To give you some background (and get a bit personal) I look back on photos of myself when I was younger and I was never overweight. This isn’t me bragging about myself, this is me saying how hard it is when you are living with a type of “body dysmorphia” like I was when I was younger. I constantly compared myself to other friends, celebrities, models in magazines, etc. and was convinced that I needed to lose weight. I can also be pretty hard on myself, and I decided I needed to fix my “problem areas” that probably never existed.
