I am NOT a NUMBER

I Am NOT A Number - - - Written By Me - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

I am NOT that number on the scale
Or that size on the tag of my favorite pair of jeans
My age does NOT reflect WHO I am as a PERSON
The width of my hips does NOT define my CHARACTER
The size of my waist does NOT reveal my true WORTH
& I refuse to let a word on the tag of a shirt hold ANY power OVER me
My VALUE is NOT measured in POUNDS or in INCHES
I am NOT a NUMBER.

I am every book that resides on my bookshelf
& every song that lives in the depths of my soul
I am the words I speak & the dreams I dream of
I am the places I've been & the places I'm going
I am the thoughts in my head & the movement in my feet
I am the people I love & the things I believe in
I am EVERYTHING that my heart beats for, longs for, lives for
I am NOT a NUMBER.

& Quite frankly,
I could care less about whether or not my body repulses you or intrigues you
It is MINE & mine ALONE
& I don't need anyone's approval or permission to LOVE it
Your opinion of this PACKAGE does NOT change the VALUE of it's CONTENT
Your VIEW of who I am does NOT alter who I REALLY am
Your WORDS have NO power over me
Because I have within me all the POWER I need
I am MADE of BEAUTY, STRENGTH, GOODNESS & LOVE
& I REFUSE to be DEFINED by ALL the things I'm NOT
& Honey, I am NOT a NUMBER.

Friends,

I hope you all enjoyed my latest piece of work! Always remember that YOU are NOT a NUMBER. YOU are so much MORE than that. True beauty is NOT defined by the mass of your body but by the size of your heart & if your heart is BEAUTIFUL, BIG & OPEN than YOU will ALWAYS be BEAUTIFUL too. Choose to get healthy because you want to be healthy. Don't do it to fit into some cookie cutter mold of what society says you should look like or be. Don't change your body to achieve acceptance or approval from others - - The ONLY approval that matters is YOURS!! Choose to love yourself every step of the way because whether your a size 0 or a size 24, you are a size FABULOUS in my eyes!!! Love yourself in this very moment & know that no one or no thing can define your WORTH but YOU!!! Keep striving for your goals but appreciate the body that is allowing you the vehicle to achieve them!!! Your body is as beautiful today as it was the first day of your journey & as it will be on the day you achieve your goal weight - - Choose to love YOURSELF at EVERY size!!!

Stay Positive, Stay Focused, Change IS Coming,

Jes
