Beauty…how does the dictionary define the word…“having qualities that give great pleasure or satisfaction to see, hear, think about, etc.; delighting the senses or mind. Looking at that definition it is clear…beauty is truly in the eye of the beholder…and that first eye should be your own.
How do you see yourself? Have you embraced your unique beauty? How you see yourself and perceive how others see you are directly related to how you feel about yourself. I have always said true beauty flows from within outward. When was the last time you just took a look in the mirror and said to yourself…”you are beautiful” to the reflection looking back to you?
The quantity of weight loss products online is enormous…it has to be one of the biggest money making industry’s going. Don’t get me wrong…there is a place for weight loss but often the reasoning behind why people are seeking to lose weight is all wrong. Most people are saying…”girl…look at how I look”…not look at how having these extra pounds are affecting my health. They are not saying…just think if began to exercise and loss twenty pounds it can help lower my blood pressure or if I modified how I eat, I can lower my cholesterol.
Fact…we need to learn how to love ourselves just as we are…we need to begin to feed those dark spaces of pain with some self love and affirmations…yes…I am beautiful just like I am…and because I love myself…I am going to live a healthier lifestyle. This can make a difference in that cycle of losing twenty pounds now only to gain fifty back later.
Food has to be what we use to nourish our bodies not our feelings. If you need to feed your feelings…while you are doing your grocery shopping pick up an inexpensive bunch of flowers for your table…now your basket contains something nourishing for not only the body but also to noursish the spirit.

Having trouble and need support on your pathway to a healthier lifestyle…call in to the Let's Talk Health teleconference.
