I am what one would call big boned.
Growing up I was constantly told that I am overweight and that I needed to work on my body.
One day I heard Joyce Meyer say: “you are going to have that body for the rest of your life. You are either going to spend your life hating it or embracing it.”
The truth is that I love me.
So I stopped weighing myself and decided how I feel about my body is enough. Every now and again I walk into the bathroom and look at my body. If I am happy with what I see then I celebrate. If I’m not I decide then what I don’t like and how I can change it.
My stomach is something that comes up often because I have a sister with a six pack. Anyway let’s say that I decided that to fix my stomach I would have to start doing core and sit ups everyday. If I wake up the next day and skip the sit ups or the core, understanding that the choice was mine: I am not allowed to complain. If however I wake up the next day and do the exercises then I may share with someone that I don’t like my stomach. (1 person… haha)
And so it goes.
The truth is that I weigh over 90kg. It is not the first thing that you see about me though.
So either I am going to show you how awesome my personality is or I will show you how insecure I can be about my body. I chose awesomeness!!
There is always something to celebrate. I have no boobs or bum. I have big lips and wide shoulders. I have a muscular build and a big head (hehehe).
Yet still I am loved just like this.
So yes I could complain OR I could understand that some things I can’t change and some things I can. That’s on me.
Because if you REALLY REALLY REALLY want something.. you will do it.
Rather be awesome
