This week two of my faves-Dr. Melissa and Rachel Lucas-each wrote about Miss England contender Chloe Marshall.
Chloe is beautiful, has a stunning smile and a gorgeous curvy body. She wears a size 16, which makes her a big fat cow according to some in the media. They're nice that way.
This made me think about my post earlier this week where I talked about what I would do if I wasn't afraid. One of the things is that I would stop hiding behind my kid on our boat and at the beach.
While I do need to lose some weight, why do I obsess over the size I wear all. the. time? Why can't I just accept myself as I am?
Others commented to me and Sassy about having the same issue. They want to lose weight. They aren't happy with how they look. They're uncomfortable in their own skin.
I do need to work on becoming more fit, but I don't need to be comparing myself to those skinny Olsen twins either. And neither do you.
So this week's Frump Fighting Challenge is just this: Embrace yourself right now. Right where you are.
Wear clothes that make you feel good. Who cares what size they are?
Go out with your husband or boyfriend and don't hide behind your big ol' bag. (Come on, you know you do that. )
Decide NOT to stay home because your old friends will notice you gained a few pounds this winter.
Live. Your. Life. And don't let the media, Hollywood, or anyone else make you feel "less than". Amen?
