8 Reasons to start loving your body TODAY


Life is short; why spend it bashing your body? If you need help jump-starting your self-acceptance, just read this list of reasons to embrace yourself - from head to toe.

1. BECAUSE it's unique; no one else has the same one.

2. BECAUSE it's capable of extraordinary feats, enabling you to run, climb, jump, lift, squat, snuggle, and spoon.

3. BECAUSE no matter how badly your treat it, it's willing to give you another chance.

4. BECAUSE it's expressive, telling you how it feels (pay attention!) and broadcasting to others how you feel about it.

5. BECAUSE, let's face it, confidence is pretty sexy.

6. BECAUSE your daughter must learn to love hers.


7. BECAUSE somebody out there (or many somebodies!) admires, covets, and adores it.

8. BECAUSE you'll regret not loving it more later!

Don't forget to enter my GIVEAWAY! Tomorrow is the last day to enter.

  10. My Mom always reminds me of #8. I fear for my children. I'm always poking and proding in front of the mirror. I need to quit that before I reproduce.

    P.S. I'm eating cookies while I read this. They're dairy and gluten free but I still feel guilty. Where did that come from?
