Transparency- the one thing I promised upon opening this IG account so, when I'm having a shitty day I'm not going to lie about it. I don't know why, but the last week I have been struggling hard with body image. One thing I do know is I have NOT let it ruin me - yeah I have felt shitty the last week, but I continue to push through and tell myself something positive everyday!
This morning when I stepped on that scale after 5 days, I told myself Tonya whatever that number is it does NOT matter! I'd be lying if I told you as soon as that number popped up I wasn't discouraged. So, what did I do to change that?! - I put on my clothes for work and guess what ?? They fit, just like they did 5 days ago!
- I ate breakfast, because my body deserves and needs the nourishment!
- I listened to a damn good podcast on my way to work, which brought some added mental support. - I said out loud - You are beautiful, you are enough, and damnit Tonya that reflection in the mirror does NOT define you!
The scale can be your best friend and your worst enemy. Whatever it is to you, don't let it make or break your day! I know obviously first hand that is a hell of a lot easier said than done! F*ck the number! Love yourself- every inch - every scar - every tiger stripe - every damn pound! You are you and that in itself is beautiful! 💖
