Sarah Chung is a Certified Health Coach and NICU nurse. For the most part, she remembers the earliest years of her life been the “fat one.” It wasn’t until after college she realized what her body needed which was real, unprocessed foods! Her journey to start losing weight began when she went to a family reunion. The first reaction she received from family she never met before was laughter. At that point in her life she was in 6th grade about 5 feet and 175 pounds, something sparked in her brain that day, if her own family is laughing at the way she looks, what are other people saying? From that moment up until college, her body weight fluctuated a lot. She initially lost 40 pounds on the 3-day tuna diet. Keeping that off did not last long. She continued to fluctuate until the end of college, late nights with pizza, beer, and chips, the calories added up. She wasn’t fat, but she wasn’t happy with her body either. She would think that after eating all that junk, running 30 minutes a day would burn all the calories off and she wouldn’t gain weight. It did and she wasn’t happy. In the beginning she wasn’t losing weight for herself or what her real issue was. She was losing weight for others and was more concerned about how others perceived her. Sarah's weight finally normalized and stopped fluctuating when she realized how her body felt and looked when she ate clean nutritious foods as well as exercised. She doesn’t deny herself foods that she ultimately wants, she eats it and doesn’t feel guilty about it. Miraculously when she was satisfied, she did not gain weight, she ate what she wanted and started to enjoy food and the way it made her feel. Sarah shares how she focuses how far she has come which has led her to be more confident in herself. She also shares tips that can help you in your own journey to confidence.
