Meet @sweetly.selina sharing her #yogasavedmylife with us💚

"This is probably one of the hardest things for me to share & I was really hesitant, but I think that's why I need to share it. It's hard to believe that the second photo above is of me in 2016" (Trigger Warning)

.

. "In that 2nd photo I'd lost 50 lbs in 7 months. I looked ill, but was even sicker on the inside. I would run 6 miles a day, & somehow lift weights at the gym for an hour that were twice my size. I measured & limited everything I ate, if anything at all. Most nights I prayed that I'd fall asleep & never wake up... //

Skip forward to now...

I am completely unrecognizable inside & out! Through incredible amounts of support from family & friends, a 6 week hospitalization, & beginning the journey of self-love, I am here today! I wake up with a smile everyday & thank each beautiful person & blessing in my life. I've completely transformed all of my relationships with people, food, exercise & myself! Of course I still struggle with insecurities, but it doesn't mean I punish myself skipping a meal or going for a run

.

Yoga helps me to explore and connect both the physical & energetic areas of my entire being. Helping me to accept the things I cannot change, yet embracing the evolution of walking off my mat better than when I stepped on 🙏

.

I'm sharing this to reach out to all with insecurities, struggles, and boxes you put yourself in, which is everyone at some point. Just know that you are beautiful, you deserve to nourish your body, mind & spirit with food, balanced physical activity & loving thoughts. You deserve to be surrounded by people who love & support you. You deserve to live a happy & healthy life.✨💛

.


If anyone is struggling with an eating disorder, feels they have unhealthy habits/thoughts or might know someone, please know I'm always a safe space to reach out to & willing to answer any questions to help those may struggling!

You are not alone!🙏🏻

Love Always,

Selina😊
