beautiful you

Hello everyone! I hope this post finds you starting your day off well.

Like I had mentioned yesterday, I had a lot to do. After a full shift at work I met up with my best friend Amanda and we had a late lunch/early dinner date. It was so good to catch up with her! As we were talking she was telling me a little bit about her weight loss goals; how she had never thought she would be where she was and she wanted to kick it into gear and reach her goal.

Then it dawned on me… every person sees themselves differently and every person carries their weight differently. Have you seen the photo floating around the internet?

Each one of these beautiful women weight 150lbs. Would you be able to tell that by looking at them? No way! Everyone carries their weight differently. Do not be a victim to the scale. The scale tells you a number that will not break you. I stopped weighing myself last year because I wanted to base my fitness goals solely on the way I look and feel.

So many women fall victim to the number on the scale and feel as though that is what dictates your health/weight loss/fitness goals. I’m here to tell you that these women are incorrect and have been falsely mislead by the media. Let your renewed energy, your enhanced mood, or your sore body dictate how well you are defeating your goals… not a lousy number.

I hope all of you ladies realize how beautiful you are and how amazing your bodies are. Think of everything your body can do! Now, imagine molding your body into the body you’ve always wanted. Start by making your body a healthy body and keeping your mind focused on how well you are doing. Keep up your positivity and confidence ladies!!!

Stay focused on your goals today and remember you are beautiful!
