Weight Loss Tip 13: Accept The Body You Have Now

Hey there little sisters! How was your week? I hope you had a great one and are fully prepared for another summer holiday weekend full of cookouts. If you aren't ready, check out my Memorial Day Survival Guide. When in doubt, bring your own food and walk around, like the social butterfly you are!

This week, I'll keep it short. Let's just dive into a little self-love. Instead of looking in the mirror and automagically thinking, "I hate my arms in a tank," or "UGH! Those thighs," I want you to be happy with what you have. That doesn't mean that you shouldn't strive to improve, but give yourself some credit for where you are in your journey.

Accept the body you have NOW, not where it will be in another few months. The secret is that there is no finish line. You don't magically finish losing weight and then everything is different. Oh, how I wish, but no. Love your jubbly legs because they help you walk. Shake that booty, even if you have no muscle tone and will never look like a video vixen when you take it low. Love what you've got now. Be thankful. Be gracious. To yourself. It's a weird concept, but try it.

I'm in love with my body now, instead of being ashamed by it. It moves faster and for longer amounts of time. It can lift more weight. I'm more comfortable everywhere I go. I feel better. I want to see what my body can do next. I feel alive. 

Sure, I have stretch marks on the inside of my arms, which are not overly toned. But I love my arms. They look pretty good in a tank top and they are stronger than they've ever been. I have to stop myself every day from instantly thinking that I "can't wear tanks". Of course I can wear a tank top. And honestly, I'll rock it.
