A letter from me to YOU:
I am sorry if I ever posted something that was triggering for you.
I am sorry if watching my weight loss journey brought you feelings of hurt, pain, comparison, or any other feeling other than JOY.
Going forward I promise for this page to be a place of joy, acceptance, and just overall life wellness.
I have fought very hard to find my health (and am so grateful for it!!) but in the process I fear I may have hurt others with a diet culture mentality.
Recently I’ve been exploring the idea of diet culture and beginning to live a life free from diet culture. What that means? I’m not totally sure yet. I know that I’m learning a lot about the rules and limitations I’ve put on myself and am realizing I have thoughts regarding food that go back 20+ years!
And yes, (because I know your wondering) I’m still a Beachbody Coach! I think I’ll always be! I believe I can do the above and still support women in their health journeys! I believe in their fast and effective workouts from home especially for busy moms and women who want to spend more time LIVING. Plus quick workouts have allowed me to be home every morning with my kids while getting healthy! So YES I will always support that!
I am starting to lead my groups with more conversations regarding this diet culture mentality and shifting the focus not only on our workouts but our minds too.
I am a work in progress! I have some days that I feel like I just ROCK at being a mom, wife, coworker and child of God. While other days I fall flat on my face! But I know for certain that I’m just out here DOING MY BEST
So it just felt it was time to say bye to the name Mommy Jess Fitness as I’ve become so much more than fitness and @mommyjess_doingmybest just felt RIGHT!
THANK YOU to everyone who has been on this journey with me and I can’t wait to continue to grow and share
Hi! I'm Jess
