Taking a HUGE step today.

We tend to remember the negative things that people say about us for years and years.  Years ago and I mean Y E A R S ago, some one told me I had huge arms.  He thought they looked like a chicken leg, tiny on the bottom and big on top.   I've always been self-conscious about my arms anyway, so when this statement was said to me, I took it to heart.  I have not worn a tank top or anything with really short sleeves.  I really let what was said to me affect me all these years.  So I have big arms. . . . does that make me any less of a person?  No, I am a wonderful person.  

I have decided today that I will no longer give that person power over me.  Today I decided that in order to love myself after I lose weight, I need to love myself right now, flaws and all.  Today I decided I am going to wear tank tops. This may seem like a little thing to you, but it is a HUGE step for me today. 

I wore a tank top all day.  I have to say I was really self-conscious, but I was proud of myself that I was able to do it and no one said anything to me, so I am on my way.  Onto loving myself for the awesome person I am and not just how I look.  Today was a good day in my journey to loving myself inside and out.
