HopeFlows Hits 60 lbs Gone with a Raw Food Diet
HopeFlows is one of our 100 lbs in 7 Months Challengers. She has been going through some stressful times in her personal life, but is sticking to her plan, pushing for the win, and learning to prioritize herself. This is huge. When it comes to weight loss, most put that need/want very low on the true priority list. While willing to try every diet out there, it is easy to use excuses like life is too hectic, chaotic, stressful, and give in and say other’s needs are more important than our own, so the walking stops, the runs to the grocery store stops. But HopeFlows is learning that her health and well-being is vital to keep everything together for everyone else. Novel point, isn’t it.
This is one of the big changes women at camp make. This idea that if we prioritize our own well-being and health, we are actually helping those we take care of. If we are balanced emotionally, and look at things with a clear head, then we make better choices and can help steer others into making better choices as well.
HopeFlows is making so many changes in her life and finding a calmer center and in doing so is not eating over the stress, is still getting in her walking, and is still losing weight. She is proving to everyone that, yes, life happens, but it doesn’t mean we don’t or shouldn’t take good care of ourselves.
We are all proud of what she is achieving through this high stress time.
