I almost weighed myself today. Almost.
But all that would do is give me a number to judge myself harshly for. It doesn’t measure who I am as a person. It doesn’t even measure my health. It doesn’t measure my strength or even weaknesses. It doesn’t measure the amazing work I’ve done in my life, as a mother, or in the gym.
So I took a picture to remind myself that I love this body of mine and that a scale, a number, false societal expectations have no power over me. I’m in control of my life, my body, and my mind. It’s my choice to love this beautiful body that is a gift.
I choose love.
