This is my "a-ha" moment for the day (week... month... lifetime?)

I have posted this link and commented in a few of my teams. It just really struck me for some reason. This beautiful girl is a finalist for Miss England. She is just a few centimeters taller than I am, and weighs just a few pounds more. But our bodies could not be more different! So for those who are hung up on what the scale says, I say relax, keep doing what you are doing (so long as it is healthy, and not a tub of Ben & Jerry's every night!), and know that it is what you're made of that matters, not how much of you there is.

In the last paragraph she says she is promoting a healthy girl who takes care of herself and does not try to force her body to be something it isn't. I think that's an attitude we all should have.

    I agree, how you feel matters way beyond what the scale says! And as someone who saw you quite recently, you look awesome!

    Awesome blog Jen! I agree, I think we all need that same attitude too. For me right now, I am just trying to get healthier. I am hung up on the scale right now because I have so much fat to lose. but when I get closer to my goal... if I am lean and never reach my goal weight.. that's ok as long as I am happy and healthy!

    Thank you for reminding us what's really important!
