Sometimes, it’s really a struggle, but not in the sense that I can’t accomplish my goal. It’s a struggle with the way I feel about body image. Since I can remember, being thin was always associated with being pretty. Maybe it was because of societal thoughts, or maybe it was peer pressure?
Regardless, being pretty is NOT synonymous with being thin. This is something I have to remind myself every now and again. Rather, being pretty should be about how one loves him/herself inside and out.
Does anyone else struggle with the issue of body image? If so, I want to hear your thoughts.
I’m still well on my way to hitting my goals. The eating healthier and being more active has definitely contributed to my success.
