Hieey there Magicals!
It’s been a minute – since I’ve last been on here.
Firstly I’d like to apologise for MIA-
I can firmly say that 2018 did not go well for me…a family tragedy occurred that has now left a scar to my soul…
That year I suffered from anxiety and depression. I thought I had it under control but honestly I was a mess..
Then January 2019 my biological dad passed away. The next month, February, I lost my step dad to cancer…
Just when I thought I could breathe a little – our beloved dog died of old age. Like what could get worse than this?
But it did- I suffered a miscarriage in May. I was about 6 weeks. Shattered can’t even describe the pain, hurt or disappointment that pierced my heart.
I began to question God. Why after trying to conceive for eight years? How could He break my heart like this for the second time?(this was my 2nd miscarriage) Will I ever experience the joys of pregnancy again?
I felt like I could never heal from the pain..
By this time I had gained so much of weight, cos I’m an emotional eater. I felt hopeless. I hated the way I looked. My social life was non existent by now.
I had migraines everyday and heartburn at night. My feet hurt if I walked a little, cos of how heavy I was. Gosh I literally hated myself.
Fast forward to now. I’ve learnt that every trial must come but also every trial has a purpose. I’ve learnt to stand firm in Christ Jesus and that He promises to walk with us in every dark moment…
Since taking control of my health I’ve lost close to 15kgs. I still have a long way to go but I’m glad I’m not in that slump I found myself in. I feel great.
This journey is not only about fat loss but it’s also about self love. It’s not easy but it’s so worth it!
I thank you all for your support and love along the way. It’s time to begin…
My next post will probably be on how I started #my weightlossjourney and steps I took to stay consistent.
Let me know in the comments if you’d love to know more about how I lost the weight.
Okay guys until next time
Stay Magical 💕
