I’m Taking the She Sweats Summer Challenge!

After many months of fighting a postpartum mood disorder and having my antidepressant turn me into a human inflatable, I am very excited to announce that I am starting the She Sweats Summer Challenge through He and She Eat Clean! The Summer Challenge is 16 weeks long. I’ll start with the She Sweats 12-Week Transformation and follow it with the Extreme 4-Week Shred.

When I decided to post my before pictures, I realized I could feel two ways about this: ashamed and unsure how I got here, or like this is a big ol’ middle finger to the antidepressant and its human inflatable ways. I settled on the second option. Take this, Zoloft. I’m done with you and I am hereby taking my body back!

After losing the baby weight within a couple months of having Baby Jo, I began to gain…and gain…and gain, until I completed my taper off of Zoloft just a few weeks ago. I gained over 30 pounds in eight months. My body image took a major nosedive, and I felt completely out of control of my own physical health.

I will be checking in every four weeks with an update on my progress, including pictures and stats. I am thrilled about this journey, but I would be lying if I didn’t say that I’m a little scared. I’m terrified to put myself out there like this. In fact, I have never had a harder time publishing a post. But here goes. This is, after all, the hardest part: the starting point. Wish me luck! :)
