About Ava Truckey

I am Ava.

In 2016, the year my daughter was born, something awakened inside me.
I became acutely aware that my current life was not the life I was meant to live, and I was determined to figure out what it was supposed to look like.
Doing so led me to losing a significant amount of weight in 2017, getting certified in nutrition and becoming a nutrition coach.
While I fell in love with coaching, I began losing sight of some of my core values.
I no longer felt creative, I didn’t want to write, I stopped reading. I only exercised if it meant I would burn a certain number of calories in order to sustain my new body. I no longer cooked unless I could make it “healthier” or “macro friendly.”
Addictive behaviors started to resurface.
My marriage started to unravel.
And then my body started protesting.
Here I was, the lowest weight I had ever been, and my body began betraying me. Lethargy, erratic menstrual cycles, sudden food sensitivities, depression, anxiety, insomnia.
I was physically small, but I also felt the smallest inside that I ever have.
Then I woke up.
The thing that I was convinced was keeping my disorder eating at bay turned out to be exacerbating it.
There wasn’t anything wrong with me, it was the diet that was stamping out my shine.
I stopped weighing myself.
I started writing about the things that mattered to me.
I began moving in ways that felt challenging yet good, not caring how many calories I burned.
I started cooking things I love and feeding the people I love.
I started to understand that when I let go of the dieting, the addictive behaviors started to wane.
Existing in my body is easier and feels better.
I’m no longer waging a war on myself.
I regained my creativity.
Repairing my marriage didn’t feel like hopelessness.
I fell in love with motherhood again.
I believe that diet culture removes us from who we are meant to be.
I believe that self-love and self-acceptance are different. Each one having their specific role.
I believe that food is meant to be enjoyed.
I believe that motherhood is not all chaos, lack of sleep and tears.
I believe that it is time that someone holds space for the hard conversations that nobody wants to have.
I believe that a lifelong partnership with another person is the hardest relationship we will ever walk through but that it is also a powerful tool of love and growth.
I believe that we are so enraptured in how we look physically that we shove ourselves away from our passions, until they themselves become unrecognizable.
I believe in inclusivity.
I believe that fat does not mean unhealthy.
I believe that changing your mind is a beautiful thing.
