Down 5 Pounds!
Updated: Jan 30, 2021
Hello everyone, it has been quite a week! Thanks so much to everyone for their amazing level of support! I am so proud of the fact that I have managed to drop from the 169 that I was up to last week to 162 as of this morning! It takes work and serious disciple. As we get older, it does not get easier at all, that is for sure. I will be 39 years old in March and I cannot tell you how easily the link between unhealthy eating and energy is! Though I bet I don't need to tell you that! I am a mom of 2 boys, ages 2 and 5 (3 and 6 in February) and they are my world! I wanted to speak quickly about the vulnerability associated with being online and making yourself open to the world, literally, though open platforms such as this. Mind you, I know what I am doing as I am doing it willingly. Being human, you naturally hope for those that come across your material to be kind. You see so many incidents of mean comments and feedback online, society is interesting indeed! I am an East Indian (some refer to us as South Asian) who is of the Sikh faith and Punjabi culture. I use the pronouns, she and her because pronouns matter. If you'd like to hear more about this, happy to share, drop a comment below. The reason I lead with that is that I remember in the last year or so a famous Punjabi singer named Jasmine Sandlas was documenting her wellness journey. She shared her weight scale and the weight was possibly around my figures if not lower, but she looks fabulous! I get that beauty is in the of beholder, but to be mean is another thing! Anyways, what I was trying to get at is the mean comments that people made making fun of her weight, absolutely not okay!!! We are socialized to associate beauty with certain norms, but the reality is as society progresses, so too do our standards of beauty. The point of this is #bekind
If you like my resources and would like to say thank you. Take care of yourselves, mental health matters! You matter, and always use your voice to speak up against injustices!
