It took me a really long time to feel confident in my skin. I spent years trying to “fix” my body. I tried to achieve what I thought was perfection. I augmented my breasts, TWICE! I filled my face with the latest and greatest to make me appear more youthful. Truth be told looking back on those photos, it aged me so much! I gained weight and lost it, usually fluctuating about 40 pounds.
I have been 145 pounds, which for me only being 5’1” is a lot for my frame and 105 at my at my extreme thinnest. No matter what weight I was, I wasn’t happy.
It wasn’t until I stopped worrying about what I was eating for my weight and started eating for my health that it all changed. I found myself. I became comfortable with who I am, no matter what weight that is.
Life is a series of highs and lows and the same thing goes for most of us with our weight. Until we grab hold of it it came be a constant up and down.
I just want to remind you that no matter what your weight is, your self worth is not found in that number. You are beautiful and capable of so much. Believing that is the first step to loving yourself.
One of the greatest relationships you’ll ever have is the one with yourself.
I wish you all a beautiful, gentle journey with yourselves.
