Have you ever wanted to be really thin? I have, but to be honest, it was for the wrong reason. You see, I believed that being thin meant being beautiful. In fact, there was a time when I was so desparate to look a certain way, and to gain approval from others – that I actually developed an eating disorder – bulimia. I probably don’t have to tell you how unhealthy and dangerous this is. I don’t want that for you. You deserve better!
The truth is…being thin has nothing to do with being beautiful. The “perfect” body you see on magazine covers isn’t real. It’s been photoshopped six ways from Sunday and it’s totally fake! Don’t believe the lie that you need to be ‘model-skinny’ to be beautiful. It’s just not true. We come in all different shapes and sizes…we’re all dealing with different life circumstances…and we’re all just different. And that’s something we need to celebrate!
I want you to love yourself for who you are, because…you are beautiful! And don’t let anyone – the media, the people you surround yourself with, and especially yourself – tell you any different.
