Your Story 11

For me the lines blurred between fitness and body image at a young age. I was told regularly that I was big boned and that I would only have to look at a donut and I’d get fat. It impacted the way I saw myself, the way I ate and my motive for fitness. It’s taken years to undo that way of thinking. But now as a mum, I have found freedom in the lumps, bumps, loose skin and imperfection that came with having babies. It’s who I am. Fitness for me is now life giving both mentally and physically. It’s about pushing my limits, increasing my stamina and having fun!
