Today’s post is short and sweet, yet hopefully speaks volumes. I've been hearing stories of women who don’t want to go places because they have put on a little weight or they haven’t shed those post-baby pounds yet. They allow that number on the scale to dictate their entire mood, self-worth and essentially, their lives. Are you telling me that some lousy pounds have that much control over us?
It’s time to take a stand against those pounds. Sure, we know when they are there, but that doesn’t mean everyone else has to, nor should they see the disappointment in our sour faces. A little weight fluctuation happens to the best of us. In my opinion, if you didn't put on 5 pounds on your vacation, then you didn't have a real vacation. So, get it together! Put on something you feel beautiful and comfortable in; accessorize with some great earrings or a knock-out pair of shoes. Do your hair. Put on a little make-up if you so choose. Most importantly…smile. Do those things and you will light up the room. Not a single soul will notice those “extra” pounds, especially you. Plus, that positive attitude will help you along your weight loss journey (just a little side bonus).
Don’t put off your life and happiness for a number on a scale. Life is too short. Embrace your body at any weight and be happy. That is truly beautiful.
