What if right now is your perfect moment in time, no matter how fat/thin/ritch/poor/happy/sad or whatever else your feeling. Looking back on life its so easy to think wow, when I was 20 my body was amazing life was so free, I had so much opportunities around me. HOWEVER I didnt appreciate it, I didn't realise it if only I had. Whist siting here right here not appreciating how amazing we are right in this moment longing to be slightly slimmer or life to be different. Before we allow ourselves to take action in creating a wardrobe we love right now......
I hear it so many times, im not shopping untill I loose this weight saying things like" There isnt any point in shopping now as I have a huge wardrobe i love that used to fit me that I'm waiting to loose weight for".
Why do this? Its total self sabotage, its like saying Im not amazing enough to cherrish right now. Im not worth spending money on the way I am. For myself to deserve these things, I have to starve and shape shift then I will be ok?
We all put on weight, loose weight in our lives sometimes its hard to drop to where we want to be, life is to busy or stressful and it wont shift thats ok, it's human. I've found the best way to create change is to accept where you are and be happy. Making sure you have clothes you love to wear whatever your size right now is a really great way to begin.
After having babies I would put on up to 3 stone and not loose at least 2 of that for a good 3 years. The first thing when ever I felt low about this would be to go out and refresh my wardrobe with things I loved. It always worked like magic in keeping me feeling fresh happy and in my moment not wishing to be somewhere else. When I would grow out of them this also felt great and I would give them to charity another good feeling win, win,win.
Here is a picture of me after having my last baby.
