My self worth will not be wrapped up in my weight. 5 or 10 or 50 pounds does not define me.
I am a strong woman. A dependable mom. A loved wife. A sister. A daughter. A friend. And all of these things, I will be despite my weight.
Yes, I want to lose these 20 or 30 pounds. Yes, eating well and exercising gives me more energy which makes me feel that I do better. Yes, I dearly would like to fit into my skinnier clothes.
But, a bad day or week or month of not eating what I should will not dictate my mood. Nor will it make me feel badly about myself.
I'm a work in progress. And while I'd like lose more weight, if I don't? That's okay, because inside I'm always going to be me.
