Let’s talk about body shaming for a moment shall we?
Y’all have been with me here for almost eleven years. You have seen me hit my highest weight and then lose a good sixty pounds. Remember my famous East German Swimmer Arms post? Even in grief I found a way to laugh about my least favorite parts of my body. What I have learned over the course of the past two decades is that is doesn’t matter what size dress I wear or what number appears on my scale, it’s ALL a mind game. I can either love my body and see it’s beauty and strength or I can listen to the negative voices in my head and be miserable hiding in shame.
I choose JOY! I choose to see strength and beauty. I chose to look in the mirror and accept that my body is not perfect but it is made in the image and likeness of God and needs to be respected. It’s only in doing this that I have found true peace and rediscovered a strength I did not know I had.
How do you look at your body? What do you see in the mirror? Has that negative inner voice taken over? Then it’s time my friend to be free and embrace your body exactly as it is today, stretch marks, saggy parts, toned parts and ALL.
I am so excited to share my next webinar with you!!Join me for “No Shame in Your Dress Size Game: Strategies to Love Yourself No Matter Your Size”. It will take place LIVE on July 31, 2018 at 9 pm EST. You can register for it here. It’s $15 and will include a worksheet of resources and strategies that I have learned over the course of the last two decades. I will be speaking on positive body image no matter your dress size, how to love oneself and be content with who we are no matter what the scale says. I have weighed 300 pounds and I have weighed 145 pounds. That number is just that, a number. It has nothing to do with your true worth or value. Stop shaming yourself for not looking exactly how you think you should and embrace where you are. Whether you are a size 2 or 22, you are awesome.
I will share specific strategies that have helped me over the past 20 years be at peace with my body no matter what the scale said. It’s not about a diet or a certain way to exercise. Come learn how to love yourself and your body as is, and be confident in your strength and beauty as a daughter of the King. God does not make junk y’all, so let’s embrace where we are and learn to love life as we are.
Come join me for an evening of encouragement as I share how I finally came to embrace my body type and be at peace with my dress size. NO MORE SHAME!!
