"It's taken me a long time to love my body. To feel comfortable in my own skin. I spent days longing to be different, longing to look like other women, and then I began to notice that I looked like me, and that is something pretty special. I am a woman. A woman with both a heart condition and polycystic ovary syndrome and I am kick ass. Not because of how I look, not because of the size of my waist or how much I weigh, but because of what my incredible, strong and fearless body can do.
There was a shift that happened. One from working out for aesthetics and weight loss, to one that allowed me to move my body for my mental wellbeing. For my future self, for my present self and for unapologetically me. My kick ass self!"0
