For me, it's about legacy.
I struggled so much as a teenager with food. I was anorexic and bulimic, I ate compulsively, and then I exercised like a maniac to try to be something the "world" accepted as beautiful and enough.
When I got married, I thought I could control my food addictions, but it seemed they only worsened.
Now we have a daughter. As a mom, I am more motivated than ever. I desperately long for something different for my children. I don't want my kids to deal with all the negative body image and self-talked that has riddled me for so long.
I envision my daughter with a healthy self-image, having no hang-ups with food, dieting, and exercising. I know this has to be something I model for her.
So, yes. I'm ready. I'm after lasting change. It's not just about me anymore.
It's about the legacy I'm leaving generations to come.
