No matter what Iโ€™m always curious to see what my weight is each day, and it really has become an sneaky obsession. And Iโ€™m really not anxious to lose any weight at the moment, itโ€™s just a habit.

So for almost two weeks, I havenโ€™t thought much about it, yet my good habits havenโ€™t changed.

I listen to my body, I pay attention to how my clothes fit, I look for non-scale victories like how much energy I have. Iโ€™m not motivated by the scale moving. I block out the noise!

You have to ask yourself, what are you doing this for?? Is it really for a # on a scale that will never remain the same?

Iโ€™ve said this before, but it really is true that a lot of what we aim for has to do with what others expect from us. And really itโ€™s just a story weโ€™ve created in our own heads that no one else can read.

We are constantly looking for reasons to prove what we feel about ourselves is true. No matter how amazing others tell us.

It really makes you think about what you really think beauty is, and why we donโ€™t see it in ourselves. We take compliments and tear them apart with our anxiety and insecurities.

Imagine a life without expectations based on vanity measurements, and instead based on the measurement of the fullness of our lives.

Itโ€™s amazing the joy that comes easy when you get rid of the distractions, made up expectations, and excuses. There is always a way!

I always thought I was amazing, but never believed others felt the same.

The older I got I realized that was more about me than others. The confidence I exuded I often felt weird expressing it.

So I had to read some chapters of my life aloud that I swore I wouldnโ€™t, to get to my happy place.

Some people are born being able to live out loud, but for me itโ€™s been a process.

I struggled with owning my dopeness โœจ!

However this has been the catalyst in finding my true purpose which is helping other women find freedom through health and wellness. The layers of insecurities, unworthiness have been peeled away with every moment I commit to myself, every new best record, every cute dress I slayed, and every moment I believed that I am awesome AF!

Itโ€™s all in the belief!!

Do you believe??

And no I didnโ€™t edit this๐Ÿ˜‚. Take me as I am โœŒ๐Ÿพ
