Here at Heartshelter we love to celebrate the successes of women who have decided to put their health and happiness first. Here we have gathered together some of our favorite stories from the last year showing how women, armed with determination, self-love, and motivating communities, set, reached, and often exceeded their goals to lead healthier, fitter, more satisfied lives. In these cases, this was the intention, but by dedicating themselves to healthy habits each woman got so much more than that. Because that’s the thing: It isn’t just about hitting a certain number on the scale. As these women demonstrate, losing takes a lot of work, including eating and exercising in a way that works for your body, managing life’s stressors, engaging in healthy habits like getting enough sleep, and keeping a reality check on what’s sustainable and what’s not.
