Do you ever feel like you aren't good enough when you look in the mirror, and always second guess things in your physical appearance?

Story of my life.  Real talk.  

I honestly have never truly loved myself.  It is sad, and I know it.  But I've never looked in the mirror and been like, "Wow, I'm hot.  Check me out."  It's always been more of like, "If I just lost a couple more pounds, or if my stomach was just a little flatter, or if my arms were just a little smaller, then I'd be perfect."

But reality is, I'm not perfect, and I know I never will be.  So why am I struggling, aiming for perfection when I won't reach it?

So, everyone...

I am temporarily taking a break from my weight loss journey, and I am going to make a conscious effort to love the body I am currently in.

I want to be able to love myself, no matter what size.  Physical activity was just a thing for me to get skinny.  I need to get to a place where I'm not doing it every day to achieve perfection.  So, I'm going to focus my energy on loving myself, and focus on how I make others feel.

And in light of such news, here are some photos from a recent styled shoot I did! Enjoy!  And always remember: You are beautiful no matter what your pants tell you.
