Let’s be raw and real... Females, we are so hard on ourselves. We let society, social media, and the scale rule us. Because of this we have an idea of what we should look like, what size jeans we should be wearing, and what number should be seen on the scale. While motivation can a good thing, obsessing is not motivation.
I have never been happy with my body, I can’t remember a time I was ok with the appearance of my body. Even at my “thinnest” I remember thinking how fat I was. Constantly obsessing over the scale, and feeling defeated when it wasn’t moving down.
Just a little fun fact in my forever long journey battle with weight and appearance.
The largest (jean size) I have ever been I was weighing around 145lbs. This picture is the scale today, I weigh 150 pounds but I am wearing 7 sizes smaller than I was at my so called “largest.” The point of this rant is to tell myself and anyone else who needs to hear it to STOP obsessing over the scale, stop comparing yourself to others, stop thinking you will never be where you want to be, stop self hate and start loving your body. Am I where I want to be? No, I’m not sure I ever will be. But I am learning to be happy with myself, learning to love my body, learning that it is ok to mess up and start over. Tomorrow is a new day, get up and crush it, and if you don’t...then do it the next day.
