I couldn’t see then what a gift the entire experience was for me, but I do now. Because this is so common, I want people to know that they are not alone.

I didn’t know exactly why, but sometimes, it just …

 For two weeks leading up to that trip to Costa Rica where the picture was taken, I did hours upon hours of cardio, ate less than 1,200 calories a day and restricted myself from carbs (which sent my husband running in the other direction because I got HANGRY. “HI, YOU’RE BREATHING TOO LOUUUUD WHILE YOU EAT YOUR STUPID, GLORIOUS-LOOKING PASTA.”). …
