Body Image-Start loving what you have

I have always had a difficult time accepting my body over the years. When I was younger, I was free with the food I put in my body , and I had what I thought to be a svelte 115lb body. Then the years passed, and my metabolism slowed down  and my fast food eating habits started to catch up with me.

Well, now I am 37 and I eat very healthy, and workout daily. However it is a struggle to accept my current body. I am constantly scrutinizing, squeezing, prodding, and wondering why my hardcore working out is taking a slow affect. My ever loving husband, and family tell me I am gorgeous, and of course It is nice to have someone that sees you in a different light, but I struggle to see myself that way. I have good days and bad days, but I ask myself all the time: why should I have to feel this way? I also want to inspire my beautiful step-daughter and amazingly handsome step-son that already are suffering societal jabs about how they should weigh less. They are 13 and 11,and they should not be feeling this way. I get it, you cannot control what kids do in school, and what people say to them when you are not around to protect. But I CAN teach them to have the utmost confidence in themselves that they are happy, gorgeous, healthy children.

 

And let me please say, that I know ALL size women struggle, so this goes out to EVERYONE, men included! Women aren’t the only one that struggle, although the percentage is definitely higher with women. Society has seemed to teach us that we must me primped, waxed, make-up painted on and in sexually pleasing clothing to appear successful and attractive. Well, that is not ok. It is time we as women start seeing our own self-worth, and accepting ourselves the way we are. It is great to strive towards health, but beauty comes in all sizes. Ladies you are ALL beautiful!

I would like to share this amazing site I have found, with plenty of inspirational videos. This site is ran by ‘Sarah Jenks’ An inspirational coach that teaches women how to love their body both spiritually and physically. I love her motto of “

“Know that hating our bodies doesn’t motivate us to take care of them, we take care of the things we love.”

It is SO true. Take care of yourself, you are real, raw, and beautiful. She has a wonderful inspirational videos series  where 12 women from all different ages, races, get together to discuss what it was like growing up feeling like they were in the “wrong” body. I encourage all of you out their to take some time to watch these real talks, and take time to peruse Sarah’s site. 

Here is the link——————>  http://www.sarahjenks.com/realtalk/

Please ladies, do not feel alone. We may not KNOW each-other, but we HAVE each-other. I am here for each and everyone one of you! Fight for your right to the confidence that you deserve!

Look, life does not work in a way in that you can make everyone happy.Or ANYONE. What do I mean? Focus in on the word “make” You cannot “make” people happy, they have to decide to be happy. But you certainly can encourage it! Go on rub the happiness in their face;)

Jesus said to him, “No one who puts his hand to the plow and looks back is fit for the kingdom of God.” Luke 9:62                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                       1464                                                                                          314                                                                                          2                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                         Katie George                                                                          Just Sayin'                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                           Esther Smith                                                                                           Yes!
