We are so thankful for our guest, Amy Reinecke, from Love Your Body Well Podcast as she vulnerably and bravely shares her health journey story with us. This episode will give so many women encouragement in their own health journeys, reminding you that you don’t have to feel alone in your story as Amy shares her personal struggles and victories.

To give a quick shout out, I found Amy’s podcast through following Lindsay O’Reilly on Instagram. Lindsay is a Thyroid RD, who is local to the KC area helping women with Hashimoto’s and hypothyroidism to get to the root and feel better. You can follow her Instagram

Amy shares all the highs and lows about her health journey, having battled an eating disorder, body shaming and a negative body image. She started Weight Watchers at the early age of 10 years old, in the 4th grade. The culture at the time allowed her to feel like this was normal, yet it set her up for years of struggling. She battled the feeling of always working to change her body, and never feeling happy with the way she looked.

Motherhood changed her heart as she did not want to pass down these feelings and struggles to her children. However, full healing had not taken place and God continued to work on her heart and soul because as motherhood changes our souls it also changes our bodies. While we know and love our bodies well for what they are able to do and how God created them, it is still difficult to battle the physical changes.

Amy encourages women that feeling comfortable in our bodies is important, but it’s beyond the number on the scale…it’s also what’s going on between your two ears. Women are fed so much toxic information on how they SHOULD look and feel that we struggle finding peace within how we look and feel. Body autonomy is what should be promoted and it’s just not the whole message.

Years of trauma and years of abuse equals years of healing. You have to love your body through it all with so much compassion.

We are talking about “God love” versus “self love”. It’s exhausting to compete with our own self-health goals. Welcome God into this journey and forgive yourself for what you’ve already done to yourself/body and reframe your mind and heart. Give yourself more empathy and compassion for who you are and where you’ve been.

Ask your body what do you need today? Do you need a workout? Sleep? Extra sleep? More water? Get something off your chest?

It’s not just what you eat or how you exercise…it’s so much more than that.

How are your relationships? How are your finances? Your sleep? Your stress?

We hope this episode stirred something inside of you to continue to love your body like God loves you!
