She also is the most amazing person. She is poetry in a human being. The best heart. Her priorities are in the right place. She is humorous and so so so knowledgeable about our bodies. I love her. Inside and out.
In fact, she did not only help change Drew’s body but she changed her life by helping her find herself.
We hope the people in the wellness world are actually healthy in their hearts and minds.

I go up and I go down. The rollercoaster of my body is a challenging, but beautiful ride. I made two kids. The single most important purpose for me being on this planet is for them! It is a true miracle I was able to have these two girls. So whatever the aftermath on my body, well bring it on! That said, there have been times i have stood in my closet and just cried. Hated getting dressed. Didn’t feel good! It takes so much for me to look decent. I have to eat just right and Work my ass off! I cannot fight the fact that I have the propensity to be the Pillsbury dough boy! (Now all I can think about is crescent rolls) So DON’T Be fooled by what you see when people are thin right after baby. Don’t compare yourself to the magazines and the red carpets. If I looked decent on anything I have done since I had my two kids, I have clawed my way there. You can too! However, it is hard to sustain and can take a lot of the joy out of life with food. But not anymore. NOW I have found that elusive B called BALANCE. 45! It only took 45 years to find myself. Right where I am supposed to be. And it’s not perfect. But it’s me. And most importantly, I want to share it with you. Ps this is the power of @marniealton, she’s the one who helped me be @santaclaritadiet ready! #WELLNESSWEEK
Then she talked about her real purpose in life; her two daughters and how it is truly a miracle to be their mother. However, there is always aftermath on the body. She shared the tough part of it all, gaining weight and not feeling good.

Drew Barrymore also has an important message for women who are in the same boat:
DON’T Be fooled by what you see when people are thin right after baby. Don’t compare yourself to the magazines and the red carpets.
To finally reach a weight she looked and feel good in, the actress had to work quite hard and it did not come naturally. She motivated others to do the same.
If I looked decent on anything I have done since I had my two kids, I have clawed my way there. You can too!
In the end, she told her fans that finding a balance is key. And it may take years, but one can get there with resilience. Drew Barrymore is truly an inspiration and we love her for putting out these words of encouragement and sharing her personal story of weight-loss.
