Cassy Roop is a fitness instructor and personal trainer who recently came in second place in a bodybuilding figure competition. 

That fact in itself is pretty impressive considering it’s only her second time competing in the sport, but it’s her journey to get there that’s truly inspiring.

Today, she is the epitome of health and fitness, but that wasn’t always the case. 

Just three years ago, she was nearly double her size and fitness and nutrition was not her priority.

The best thing that you can do is repair your relationship with food. Until you change your mindset and daily habits, you will be stuck in a loop-hole of endless yo-yo dieting.

“I couldn’t even walk a block because I was out of breath. I couldn’t go outside and play with my kids because I was too tired. I didn’t want to be that mom. I didn’t want to just exist in my kids’ lives, I wanted to be present. So, I decided to do something about it, starting with small changes, like replacing soda with water and eating more fruits and vegetables. I started cooking more meals at home. I didn’t gain the weight overnight and I knew I wouldn’t lose it overnight.

As the pounds started to come off, I started feeling better. The side effect of that was I started to look better, and my confidence and motivation grew stronger. But I had to address my lifelong addiction and anxiety with food.
I got creative in the kitchen to give my favorite comfort foods a healthy spin. Now, I see my kids reaching for healthier choices. Instead of candy bars, they’ll pick cotton candy grapes or fruit over ice cream. That shows me I’m doing what I’m supposed to do and leading by example for them.

Cassy Roop Before and After

My advice? Do not let the scale dictate your success. There’s going to be fluctuations, but I promise if you keep going, it will happen. You can’t always be 100%, and if you try you will be frustrated and set yourself up for failure. You only fail if you give up. Time and consistency are the two biggest things that will be on your side. Be more consistent than not. Work on it little by little every single day.

With so many diet options and methods out there, it is easy to get overwhelmed. How do you find the best “plan” for you? Simple. Find the one that you can stick to. The one that you can do every day for the rest of your life. The one that not only gets you results, but one that is sustainable.

There are so many fads and gimmicks out there. There is no one be-all-that-ends-all way of eating and exercising. You have to find something you enjoy doing, otherwise you won’t want to do it.

I’m not saying it’s easy. I’m not saying you aren’t going to have setbacks, but I can promise that if you just keep going despite those setback and struggles, you will get the results you are looking for.

The best thing that you can do is repair your relationship with food. Until you change your mindset and daily habits, you will be stuck in a loop-hole of endless yo-yo dieting. Fitness and nutrition should be about living your best life possible and having it fit into your current lifestyle, not adjusting your entire life around it. I found that the happier I became with myself, the less that food addiction and food anxiety had over me. Do I still enjoy the occasional treat? Yes, but I’ve learned over the years to not see foods as good or bad. Instead, I look at food for what it can do for my body and how it makes me feel. Do I have energy? Am I satiated? Does it fuel my daily activities and workouts?
No matter where you are in your journey, just be patient and give yourself time. Small changes add up to big results!”
