|This as well as the "30 lbs. lost" pic was taken last night. Not the greatest quality with my cell phone, but you get the idea.|
Love this song, "Just The Way You Are", by Bruno Mars, it reminds me of those in my life that have always told me I'm beautiful, no matter what my size was at the time.
I think we're all beautiful and need to believe it, O.K. sometimes I don't, but I'm working on it. We all need someone in our lives telling us we're beautiful. If they don't, communicate the need to hear it.
I think part of what motivates us along this health and wellness path is thinking we're beautiful and continuing to make efforts to improve our beauty, whether it's with healthy food, exercise, stress reduction, good sleep, etc. I know when I hear, "you look beautiful today," it helps me make better choices for the day, because I want to improve myself, even the beauty aspect.
As I said earlier I'm still a work in progress and have a long way to go, but I'm really enjoying this part of the journey, caring for myself, painting fingernails, wearing makeup more often, caring that my clothing fits properly and is attractive. I like feeling pretty! It helps keep me on track.
Does feeling pretty help you stay on plan?
