You are NOT defined by a NUMBER !

Your self-worth, beauty, strength, and overall awesomeness is not defined by numbers.

You are not the size of your jeans.

You are not the number of calories you eat each day.

You are not the percentage of body fat you carry at any given time.

You are not the number on the bathroom scale.

You are not the cup size of your bra.

You are not the circumference of your waist, glutes, or thighs.

You are not the weight on the barbell you pull off the ground or the dumbbell you hoist overhead.

While society may use these numbers in an attempt to indicate our worth as women or to paint a surreal picture of “perfection” we feel obligated to strive for, I’m here to proclaim that you are NOT a series of numbers. I will admit to this, I have a hard time with numbers. With fitting into a size or wanting a number on the scale.

Sure, we are human and have feelings and society needs to start diminishing the feelings around numbers and start looking at strength ! I had a hard time with the scale. No I HAVE a hard time with it. If the number on the scale was higher than what I wanted, my ENTIRE day was ruined. Is that stupid? Yes!The numbers don’t matter and they certainly don’t reflect your true beauty and self-worth.

Our self-worth, beauty, strength, and awesomeness is not defined by numbers. The revolution truly begins when we realize this truth. And when we do, then we are truly free to be the most awesome version of ourselves.

You need to stop letting "others" define you and your worth. Did you ever realize that life is going great until you see someone on Instagram and wonder what she has that makes her beautiful or unique? Did you ever look at you and wonder if others are looking at you thinking the exact same thing? Life has a funny way of going full circle. So before you start criticizing your legs, stomach and face.. someone out there is wishing they looked like you too !
