There has been a LOT of talk lately about Loving Who You are! This is a really important thing to learn. With all the media and the need for everyone to be so called perfect we sometimes forget that God made us a certain way....shape....body type...etc...and we should be accepting and appreciative for our god given beauty.
However....sometimes this can be seen as an "out" or part of the problem causing many to be happy...ish with an UN HEALTHY version of themselves. YES some of us are inherently larger in size....that's fine ...as long as your larger size is not a result of your unhealthy habits rather than genetics.
Part of loving who you are is taking care of your self!!! You need to also be healthy in your own skin. You need to learn to accept and Love yourself. We all need to make sure we are not accepting and loving an unhealthy version of ourselves!
We are in control of our own self worth...and if you really wanna love yourself and who you are.....take care of you! Putting YOU and your health at the top of your list of importance KEY! You deserve to be healthy and to live a comfortable life in your own skin, and to be there for your children! Sometimes, especially those who are mother's get caught up in everything else except looking after ourselves!
On the other side of the scale .....sometimes we jump on FAD diets.....crazy concoctions and potions that claim to make us thin! YIKES.....run! Just eat healthy real food! Even our local organic markets are cheaper and more effective than some of the crazy get thin quick promises out there. Put food that is fuel for your system in your mouth! Not a powder form of food....or a highly processed snack. How about the real deal....like an apple....or a carrot....I don't know....call me crazy...what about a Banana!
Its not healthy to get thin via ANY other avenue than real food! Think HEALTH not thin.
Remember it is not healthy to be overweight either! Carrying around 30~ 40~ 50 ~60 or even 100 extra pounds can take years off your life and years off the time your children get to spend with you!
You do not need to look like a super model....or a fitness model....or a Movie star.....but you do need to be realistic with yourself and your health.
Obesity has reached a point of epidemic on our side of the world.....and sometimes we need to be unhappy with the unhealthy person we have become!
No sense in getting down about it and making it worse.....do something about it! Take action!! There is a world of info out there...so much FREE help it's overwhelming!!!I can guarantee if you take action....you are gonna LOVE yourself for it! Your gonna generate happy endorphin's like crazy! just simply looking after yourself is a source of happiness!
Here is a list of Illnesses, some potentially fatal directly caused by not being at a HEALTHY weight!
Hugs and kisses to you all!!! well.......for those of you that read this far down XOXOXO
