Transformation Series, Part 1: Find Your Worth, Part 2: Discover Your Strength, Part 3: Stay the Course – by Marilynn Song Harri
“I remember vividly what it was like to wish for change, but feel helplessly unmotivated–too exhausted to do anything other than survive. Resigned to basically feel like frump-girl forever, I wallowed in plates of cookies and Netflix binges, and tried to put my focus on raising my children and putting semi-balanced meals on the table. At least I can cook, I reasoned. I struggled to justify my shortcomings in the areas of fitness and self-care and held on for dear life to all the things that brought validation.”
