Last week was very delicate for me. I exposed myself in ways I never thought I would by sharing my personal battle with my weight and how I'm trying to change that mindset. I also set forth my plan to do something about it: be active instead of repeatedly doing nothing. So I'll do a lifestyle change, not a diet. I will take my time instead of seeking instant results.
But my biggest takeaway from all of my self reflection and vulnerability was to remind myself and remember that I am more than what a number on a scale tells me.
* I am a woman
* I am a wife
* I am a mother
* I am a survivor of emotional abuse
* I am passionate
* I am caring
* I am a first-generation American
* I am excitable
* I am funny
* I am imaginative
It's never a bad idea to want to be healthy and strive to better yourself. However, it's just as meaningful, and honestly, necessary to remember that no one is ever defined by their weight. I am more than the size of my jeans. What are the things that make you you?
I'm a twenty-something mama who honestly has no clue what I want to do in life at the moment. For the longest time that scared me but now I embracing it and documenting it here.
