When I was 10 a girl in my class told me to eat more salads so I could lose weight and look like her. I remember being on swim team and listening to the boys laugh as I walked by because my thighs jiggled. In high school, girls complained about buying size 10 dresses, when I was working out, dieting, and praying to buy a dress below a size 12.
Honestly, all of these experiences sucked. But if anything, it’s made me realize how I want to approach the topic of self-love with other women. Are you listening? This blog is for you.
On the blog today I’m getting real with you about the difference between confidence and your appearance. I’m here to tell you that you don’t need to be a size 4 to have a great time/hot hubby/successful career AND that it’s more important to be strong than thin.
Growing up, I made the same mistakes over and over about picking being skinny over being strong. I don’t want you to do the same. Head on over to the link in my bio to hear the lesson it took me 15 years to understand!
