“Be with someone who you don’t have to hide from, in any way. Whether it’s your morning face before you’ve put your make up on, an embarrassing story to tell about something that happened on your way home, or an ambition you’ve had since you were six… make sure you end up with someone who knows all of it and still loves you. A person you can tell your whole life to is a person worth spending a life with.”—(via these-greatexpectations)
“Screw skinny. Screw being obsessed with counting calories. Screw destroying your metabolism. Screw the scale. Screw negative self talk. This is not what life should be about. Please choose happiness, please choose health. I beg you - please choose life.”—(via anna-learns-to-love-herself)
“A happy or unhappy life is your own creation. Nobody else is responsible. If you remember this, you won’t find fault with anybody. You are your own best friend as well as your worst enemy.”—Swami Satchidananda (via onlinecounsellingcollege)
I don’t want…
To be winded when I walk.
To live life with regrets.
To constantly wonder “what if”.
To be stuck in a rut.
To feel sorry for myself.
To let life pass me by.
To live in fear of rejection.
To worry about where I sit on a bus or plane.
To feel inadequate.
To continue to hide behind my weight.
To use food as a way to fill a void in my life.
To settle for less than what I deserve.
To live a mediocre life.
To not find the right man for me because I’m afraid to be vulnerable.
To be full of excuses.
To wonder if it’s too late to change.
To be comfortable in my own skin.
To be able to shop in regular stores.
To be healthy and fit.
To have the confidence in myself to love and be loved.
To not be afraid to look in the mirror.
To be and feel sexy.
To wear a swimsuit comfortably.
To walk with my head held high.
To not constantly worry about what I eat.
To be fabulous.
To say yes to every opportunity that comes my way and not let my weight be a road block.
To have jeans that make my booty look good.
To go back to swimming.
For exercise to be something I enjoy.
To not be the biggest person in the room.
To stop disappointing myself and those who support me.
To have a healthy relationship with food. It isn’t the enemy.
To be proud of myself.
To be someone people look up to.
To be strong.
To be fearless.
To be who I’m meant to be.
I’m looking for more Tumblrs to follow. It doesn’t matter if they are runners, cross fitters, body builders, etc or that they follow WW, Paleo, clean eating or whatnot.
I don’t care if they have 10 pounds to lose or 100. I don’t care if they have reached their goal weight or are currently struggling. For me, tumblr is a source of inspiration/motivation and I want to add more awesomeness to my dash.
