Are you weighing yourself down with negative thoughts, choices and behaviors?
Are you tired of being told how you should look, how to exercise, how to dress? Are you sick of talk about what’s good for your body, eating habits, choices and even your dreams and aspirations by people who don’t understand or who haven’t been where you are right now?
Do you truly want to find your place in the world, YOUR WORTH, in YOUR WAY on your own timeline? And are you looking for a place that gives you breathing space to express what is going on it that beautiful, awesome head of yours? Could honest, real life stories from people who have had similar experiences help you on your journey to discovery?
I am Taryn, Creator and Lead Encourager of WORTH HER WEIGHT. If you’ve read this far, then you belong here and I hope you will make the decision to sign up and start receiving your own copy of my weekly newsletter right in your in-box. I know where you are. As an obese woman who physically survived a rape in college and used food and alcohol to deal with my pain, I was either going to die or fight for my life. But I wasn’t just going to survive.
I knew I needed my own personal support group and I knew deep in my soul that it wasn’t all about overeating, lazy thinking, feeling good or just looking like the smaller population around me. I knew it had to start within, and I knew I had to surround myself with people who got me, who understood the pain, who cared about my future, and who would spend time helping me heal on my own terms. Yes, there had to be a little bit of accountability – I mean, how much moaning and groaning can one person do about their weight before a loved one speaks up and says, “Get off the couch and get moving?”
Here’s the thing. That group didn’t emerge from those closest to me. Not because they didn’t care, but because they were too close to the problem. I had to seek out people that had what I wanted, or who set an example for me regarding how I wanted to live my life. And then I had to approach them. But I didn’t know what to ask, because at the time, I wasn’t sure what the IT was.
Well, years have passed and I figured out the IT, and I have been encouraging and supporting women in their journey all over the world. I have learned that it isn’t always “ABOUT ME” and the more I evolve into the caring, encouraging woman I want to become, the more I realize that there are so many women of all sizes who need that kind of support and encouragement.
If you are like me, you need your confidence back. You need to get inside and find that excited energetic dreamer with the Can Do attitude and you need to make your dreams come true right where you are today.
Have I lost the weight? Nope, not yet. Do I know how hard it is? Yes I do, and I have come to realize that weight isn’t the issue. I have to find myself right where I am. And that I have done. I am confident and full of myself, and I know I can do anything I set my mind to regardless of my size. I am big, beautiful and so WORTH IT. And yes, I am enough. YOU ARE TOO.
So, if you want to become a part of this BIG new community supporting one another without judgment or labels, then sign up in the box below. Come on and WEIGH IN on some of the discussion.
You might just change a life. And it might just be yours.
