I am preaching today…

I wish I knew then what I know now that it wasn’t ME that wasn’t enough… it was the fact that weight loss on its own, no matter how great, was never going to be enough.

Because no matter how much you or I weigh, no matter close we come to achieving the ultimate goal of the perfect body, *the one we all have envisioned in our minds* unless WE transform on the inside, our progress will never be worth a damn thing to you or to anyone else.

So make it worth it. Make YOU worth it.

Learn to love yourself in the process of changing your body. Welcome and embrace the confidence that comes along with it. Feel brave and take joy in the fact that you are improving your life. And Love Yourself.

Not tomorrow.

Not six months from now..And not three years from now when you reach the second goal you set for yourself because you believed that first goal wasn’t enough once you got there…

WE are enough right now.

So love yourself now.

    Love this!!! It is so important to be in love with yourself at any weight. Just because you want to lose weight doesn’t mean you don’t love yourself, it just means you want to better yourself. Absolutely love this post!

  2. This is so dead on. If you can’t loom at yourself and love yourself at 300, you won’t at 150.Or that was my experience.
