Hello guys! It’s 2017 and I must confess, I’m all fired up with plans and goals to attain in this year. Now while I was making my list, on thing kept popping up in my head….weight loss. Let me point out here that I have been trying to lose weight for a while but have simply lacked the discipline to see it through. I didn’t want to put it down but the thought kept recurring. And with that came the accompanied thoughts of how fat I am, how much more confident I’ll be if I lose weight, how I’ll be more beautiful, more attractive, sexier and all of that till I took a decision and blocked them all out.
Who says I can’t be fat and confident, sexy,attractive, fun etc? I realized that I was exactly where society wanted me to be; in the position where I felt that being slim was the requirement for beauty. And I said no. No! No!! No!!!
I accept my body and I love it just as it is. Truthfully, the only way to get your dream body is by being confident in your current one and loving it the way it is so as you work to make it what you want, you do it right and love it even more. Take pride and confidence in your body; warts, stretch marks, flabs, pimples, bow legs, cellulite and all.
So people, get that confidence on!!!
