A setback that is out of my control

Life is too short to be overly concerned with your outward appearance. I am still on my healthy food, and weight loss journey. I have not lost all the weight I am working towards losing because of physical and sometimes mental setbacks. As I mentioned in a recent article, I have been dealing with some pain in my right wrist for quite some time now and it has made a difference in my energy level and motivation to exercise.

This is a setback that is somewhat out of my control and also why I was not able to write an article for day 05, I had to take another day of physical rest which included no typing.

A setback that I can control

Laziness is a thing, and I can be lazy sometimes. However, being lazy is a setback that I can control but choose not too sometimes. So of course, I have not met my personal weight loss goals yet, but that does not cause me to look at myself in a negative light. Not at all:

I still Love myself just the way I am, and I hope you do too.

Love yourself | Curves and ALL

We may not look like we “think” we should but understand that we look exactly the way we should at this moment of our lives.

Love yourself | Curves and ALL | Your body DOESN’T define you

Just because you may carry a little extra weight, have too many wrinkles, feel like your skin is too dark, light, scarred, pale or any other negative thought. Does not mean that you are not beautiful, handsome, cute or “ALL THAT” because you are!

Love yourself, curves and ALL, your body DOESN’T define you. YOU DEFINE YOU

Don’t let negative thoughts define the way you see yourself. You DEFINE YOU! Look at yourself in the mirror and speak positive thoughts out loud if that is what you need to do to remind yourself that you are Beautiful just the way you are! Celebrate Yourself today and everyday by Celebrating ALL that you are!
