Finding Strength In Our Struggles

Strength does not come from winning. Your struggles develop your strengths. When you go through hardships and decide not to surrender, that is strength.” -Arnold Schwarzenegger

We are all human. We all struggle, and are perfectly imperfect. Embrace and learn from your own struggles, and view them as the opportunity for growth that they are :-).

  1. I also struggle to find balance with eating. I have had disordered eating for about 12 years now. I am so much better than I once was, but I think these struggles have been why I have kept on these last 25 pounds. Thanks for opening up. I hope I can overcome my problems like you have.

  2. Heidi, Thank you for your willingness to let us share in your struggle to find success. I am healed from anorexia/bulimia. I struggled from 7th grade to my senior year of high school. It has been on my heart to write to you and Chris and tell you that what you are teaching is great for someone that struggles with eating disorders. In the 90’s their was limited information about heathy eating. I appreciate what I have learned from the both of you. I am in the best shape of my life. The best part is that I am doing it in a healthy way! Thanks! I appreciate knowing that I was not alone! It can happen to anyone!

  3. AWESOME!!! Thank you for opening up and helping others through the lifestyle changes people are making! You are wonderful!

  4. He’s right, Heidi. You are breathtaking! And while pregnancy might not keep you looking like you want to look, you are partners with God in a miracle. And making a baby is nothing less than a miracle. I wish you every happiness.

  5. there is such a misconception as to what is “perfect”! I’m not sure there is a perfect. I just finished reading Chris’s 2nd book and have been a fan of the show since day 1. I want to Thank You and Chris for all the good you have done so many people!! I have tried and tried, but have struggled, like everybody else. After finishing the book, I had an aha moment and have realized that I let my life’s struggles get in the way of what is truly important. You both are such an inspiration. Thank You from the bottom of my heart!! Thank you very much for sharing your struggles and journey. I wish both of you nothing but the best!!

  6. It was brave to share your story and the most unselfish thing ever. I think that by people sharing their stories, you help others to also share theirs, sometimes when they are still in the midst of the struggle and needing help. I’m sure Chris tells you this daily, but just take it from another woman (we can be the worst critics to other women sometimes I think) that you are a beautiful person, inside and out.

  7. Thank YOU!!!! A million times. Also, I totally get it with being pregnant it is very hard for so many physiological reasons. Honesty can heal others.

  8. Your willingness to reveal the struggle you?ve been through just proves how caring you are and how much you want to help others who might be going through the same thing. Thank you for that! You are amazing. 🙂
