“Can I tell you a secret?” she said.
Of course, you can, what is it?
“I hate the way I feel about my body. I can see so much more for my life, but the way I look and feel about myself is holding me back.
Why do I keep quitting –quitting on me? I do exactly what I promise myself not to do. I eat the foods I swear I’ll never indulge in again and I can’t even remember the last time I worked out for a whole month.
Why can’t I get a handle on this?
Why am I such a failure?
I don’t think I can deal with another thing on my to-do list.”
Have you ever had this conversation with yourself? Do you live in a constant argument with yourself? Do you promise to do one thing and then when you don’t you beat yourself up and promise to do better next time?
Do you love yourself, sweet sister?
Look in the mirror. What do you see?
Do you like what you see or do you want to look away? Do your eyes fill with tears, do you push and pull on parts of you thinking if I only this was up higher and that was sucked in?
I’ve come to learn this is a struggle many women fight daily and they suffer in silence; they think they’re alone. But, the truth is, they’re not. 91% of women are said to be unhappy with their appearance; this should not be!
Well, while her words poured out and the tears started to fall, I knew I had to share the truth that set me free from this pain.
If this sounds like you and you’re tired of feeling less than the fearfully and wonderfully made beauty you are, will you love yourself back to health by quitting these 7 things?
7 Things You Need To Quit To Be Happy and Fit
- Doubting yourself
- All or nothing thinking
- Giving up
- Thinking it’s too late
- Beating yourself up with negative self-talk
- Thinking you’re alone
We have a savior that died for us. He did that so you and I could be free. Living in a self-made prison of negative thoughts and self-berating talk is not God’s best for you.
Please stop! Choose to love yourself – you right now…not when you lose weight, get a new, job, make that promotion, have more time, no…right now.
Don’t limit all God has planned for you by quitting. He promised to be your strength.
I Want To Help You and I Have Just the Tools To Do It

Come on, I know you see something beautiful in the mirror. Look again…
Happy Valentine’s Day!
Remember You Are Loved,
