Day 26: Size ME!
DAY 26: SIZE ME!
This is a personal favorite activity of mine and one that is a game-changer too. A defining moment in not only my life came when I openly accepted and declared my current dress size. But more than a number, it was a moment where I decided the only size I needed to care about was SIZE ME. My body, my life, my smile, my everything.
TODAY, SHARE A FULL-BODY PHOTO AND CREATE A PICMONKEY POSTER SAYING “I’M PROUD OF SIZE ME!”
Maybe you have a photo on hand or take today as an opportunity to gussy up a bit and take new photos. Put on your favorite dress, maybe some hair/make-up styling. Allow yourself to feel the beauty that you’ve been working on so much inside. Or go engage in your favorite activity and capture the moment, showing the world you doing what you love and that your body size doesn't limit you.
Being able to accept “size you” means standing up for where you are right now, without shame or guilt. You do not have to include your dress size, though that is also a possibility if it's speaking to you. For me, telling the world I was a size 18 meant I was ending my battle to let a number define me. It’s not a number to be ashamed of; it is truth, and that is powerful.
I know for some of you that this might feel like climbing Mt. Everest, but you’ve got a month’s worth of tools to help you now, and it’s time to take a leap . . . I promise, the net is very comfy and loving. :) But try. Know the group is full of love and support, and that feeling of fear is normal . . . so take a breath, post it up, and see what changes for you. :)
