Living life to match a number on the scales or in your clothes is not living.
There, I said it.
And I should know. Because that’s been the story of my life until I finally got a hold of myself.
High school was not a fun time for me, I was overweight and had bad skin… To say the least, I was not confident. But later on in life, something amazing happened: a few key people express confidence in me. And the transformation was the coolest thing; not so much what happened on the outside, it was what took place on the inside. I was finally doing things to make myself be the best ME I could be. I was polishing up the rough edges. I started working out. I started eating better.
Eventually, my skin started looking better. And I started walking taller and with more confidence.
I began paying attention to what was going on in the world and started investing myself in things I believe in. That meant I had to really get a hold of what I believed in for real. I had to establish clear personal boundaries and stick to them.
And I learned that health from the inside out comes from doing the best I can with what I have. And letting who I am shine through.
After I changed how I treated myself, people changed how they treated me.
And you, my friend, are so much more than a number on a scale. It’s time to invest in yourself. It’s time to start living a healthy lifestyle, not to be skinny, but to feel good and to live a long, strong and healthy life. That’s how we find inner happiness, confidence and beauty.
We actually do have control over the ME we are. and the ME we project. Don’t do things backwards.
We can choose to be pitiful or powerful. No victims here!
