Why did you click here? Was it the promise to lose weight within 2 weeks? Was it the hope of losing some kilos, to “finally be happy”? Was it, because your body image is the thing you think the most about every single day?
Whatever the reason is, this is why I named this article that way. It may not be fair for some. But I wanted to talk to YOU. You who thinks you have to change your body so badly. You who is probably lacking of self-love. You who may be moving your body out of fear, instead of love.
I used to scroll down instagram and to stop on posts like : “tips and tricks to lose weight easily”; or stories like “What did I do to lose 5 kilos within a week”; or “how to lose weight without doing any diet”?
I used to only look for these things.
I used to grab a magazine if I saw a new diet so I could try it.
In the hope to finally feel better. In the hope that with these X kilos less I would feel happy and confident. So I get it. I get you. I have been there.
But here is the secret: with X kilos less or more, it will not make you happier. I was miserable even at my skinniest.
I was miserable no matter the number on the scale.
It was never enough.
💛 And one day I discovered I am neither just my body, neither am I my weight.
I am not just an image.
I am not just what he/you/they see.
My body has never been the issue. Neither was my weight.
Because I already was, and still am: shining inside and out.
So I have one last question for you: are you ready to shine too?
why should i try it?
