I recently read an article written by a woman who had transitioned from being a size 4 who watched everything she ate and counted every calorie to a healthy mom of 5 who has learned to embrace her size and now scoffs at society's idea of what the perfect woman should look like! I have to say reading this article was refreshing! So many times we read articles and see covers of magazines with super skinny women and unfortunately those images are seared into our
minds and we are disappointed when we look at our reflection in the mirror seeing every lump and bump wondering why we don't look like Kim Kardashian; Halle Berry or Jennifer Lopez. I'll be honest I wouldn't be upset if I looked like these ladies…but I think even these women look at their reflection and cringe at some part of their body as well.
So how did we get here? Why is it easier to say "Be Happy in the skin you're in" but it's not as easy to actually be happy in that skin! I'm going to be honest it's hard! Project Fit is not only my attempt to lose 20 pounds, I feel it is an exercise in me really being happy with what I look like; psychologically being satisfied with who I am and choosing to be healthy and strong for myself and for my family and I think that will be harder than losing 20 pounds and my muffin top! But this is part of the journey!
