My Mother'S Advice

This Sparked Me!

When I first got heavy about thirty years ago, I let myself completely go. I turned into a slob. My mother took me shopping and made me vow to never leave the house without makeup and a hairdo. She said to me, "You were always an attractive thin girl and you can be an attractive fat girl, too."

MORE INFORMATION:
No matter your size, you should always look your best. You will feel better about yourself and shows that you still respect yourself. It made a world of difference for me! Thanks Mom!

    I can relate. I also completely let myself go when I gained weight, and I'm slowly learning to start taking care of myself and my appearance again. I've also discovered that it's a whole lot easier to stick with my diet and exercise plan when I feel like I'm already pretty, and not just exercising in order to get pretty. Keep it up!
