Be You.... and .... LOVE IT!

I have always been a bigger girl
it's who I am, yes I can fix it, yes I have and am trying.
But over the last month I have started to come to a realization.
Life is short, Live it up, and Love yourself!
Be yourself and LOVE IT!
How can anyone else love you if you don't love yourself?

If you have been following since January I started running.
It first started out to lose weight.
Now it is so much more.
I don't run everyday anymore and for me thats ok.
I run for fun, I go on walks, I do different workouts.
I just try to stay active and feel better.

I do, I feel great!
Does this mean I am going to strut around in a bikini? Heck no!
Does this mean I am gonna wear my tankini, cut off shorts, and a tank top with pride?  Hell yes!!

I love following Skinny Runner blog.
She is hilarious and is a great inspiration.
One of her posts she was talking about the way women talk and think of themselves.
She made a great point.
If your inner self was a person, you would NOT be friends with them
You would not like the way your friend talked to you.

I also have decided to take on what my friend Courtney does.
She says she doesn't use a scale.
I totally threw mine out after hearing this.
It's probably the smartest thing ever!

I always missed out on doing fun blogposts like What I wore Wednesday and I always take pictures and am never in them.
Not anymore.  Pictures here I come!
