I'm very shapely --curves and hips with a nice chest and big African booty.
I lovee the way I looked when I was 230 pounds and I love the way I look now 60 pounds lighter.
I know what it feels like to struggle with weight and I am hitting the gym to keep myself toned and in good shape, and I eat right to keep myself healthy.
But there are so many women out there that struggle with their weight--up and down.
They struggle with body image.
They struggle with burns from an accident.
They struggle with sexuality.
They struggle with who they are.
There are women out there that just can't find the beauty within themselves.
They have low self esteem.
They forget about how truly blessed they are to look differently.
Love yourself always for who you are and how God made you.
Theres only one you.I hope this inspires someone out there.
I found this in SHAPE magazine and I wrote on each day of my daily planner to continuously inspire me to love my body for what it is.
Life is short; why spend it bashing your body? If you need help jump-starting your self aceptance, just read our list of reasons to embrace yourself-from head to toe
BECAUSE it's unique; no one else has the same one.
BECAUSE it's capable of extraordinary feats, enabling you to run, climb, jump, lift, squat, snuggle, and spoon.
BECAUSE no matter how badly you treeat it, it's willing to give you another chance.
BECAUSE it's expressive, telling you how it feels (pay attention!) and broadcasting to others how you feel about it.
BECAUSE, let's face it, confidence is pretty sexy.
BECAUSE your daughter must learn to love hers.
BECAUSE somebody out there (or many somebodies!) admires, covets, and adores it.
BECAUSE you'll regret not loving it more later.
