The Greatest Gift You Can Give Your Kids

coaching stress eating weight loss May 04, 2024

They say that there are three things that change a person forever. One is going to war as a soldier. The second is becoming a doctor, and the third is becoming a parent. 

While I’m not a soldier and have never been to war, I can certainly agree with the second two. 

The process of becoming a doctor and all that you see and do in those 4 years of medical school changes who you are at your core. 

And when I saw my babies live outside of me after 9 months of pregnancy, it truly was like “having your heart go walking around outside your body,” as Elizabeth Stone says.

The moment I became a mother changed me and my life priorities forever. 

I became a martyr for many years, sacrificing my sleep, nursing my kids in the middle of the night, and dropping all my self-care routines to care for them. 

But being a mommy martyr stopped being sustainable when I noticed the toll it was taking on my own body.

My wake up calls came…

When my scrub pants no longer fit…

When I noticed I was hiding behind my kids in pictures…

When my cholesterol and Hemoglobin A1C levels were creeping up…

When I started huffing and puffing running after my toddlers…

When I threw out my lower back from being so overweight…

When a high school friend died in her 30’s

When I fell into the overweight category for the first time while getting a life insurance exam that was meant to protect and provide for my kids…

That’s when it hit me: I was not being a good role model for my kids and the life insurance policy wasn’t just a theoretical one that my family might need one day any longer.

I realized if I didn’t start taking care of myself, I may not be around long enough to see my kids grow up.

And what my son and daughter need most in this world is their mother and a healthy, happy one too. 

That’s when I knew things had to change…

I had to stop hiding in the pantry eating chocolate chip cookies after a crazy ER shift.

I had to stop digging into a big bowl of ice cream after getting the kids to bed as a reward for making it through another stressful day.

I had to stop showing up with low energy and a crabby mood because that’s not the mom I wanted to be for them.  

I drew a line in the sand and decided it was truly time to get to the root of the problem by ending my stress and emotional eating and that’s when I got a coach to help me make a change for good.
