Growing up, Malorie was involved in competitive dance. She was active and had a healthy metabolism that allowed her to pretty much just eat whatever she wanted. When she was pregnant with her first child, she gained 75 pounds. After her son’s birth, her curiosity and journey into fitness truly began. Malorie started clean eating and by her son’s first birthday she had lost all the weight she gained during the pregnancy, and a little more. All of the things above were happening while Malorie was going through a very difficult time in her life. But, she was determined to have a better, different life and she persisted until she achieved her goals.
Malorie competed in fitness competitions for 7 years. She won competitions and was even featured in a fitness magazine. After 7 years, Malorie decided it was time to step away from the fitness competition world and focus more on her career. She went from 127 lbs to 145 lbs and that change was so difficult and sent her into a struggle with body dysmorphic disorder (BDD). Malorie was really struggling and her husband encouraged her to seek professional help. She found a counselor that specialized in body image issues and worked with her for 4 months. Malorie shares how that same discipline and competitiveness she used for fitness competitions helped her overcome her struggles with BDD.
Malorie and Julie discuss the importance of finding freedom with food. Malorie shares how she always makes choices based on how she wants to feel. Not only in regards to food but, in your relationships and all life choices.
Malorie shares that staying curious is her most pivotal upgrade. Just learn, don’t judge things and lean into curiosity. Being curious is what has formed Malorie’s career and helped cultivate a life that she absolutely loves.
