If you are on a weight loss journey—whether it’s just started or it’s been going on for years—you may feel, as many people losing weight feel, that you don’t get to enjoy your body yet. You may feel like, for now, love and appreciation of your body is put on hold until you reach your goal weight. You may feel as if life doesn’t really get to begin until you see the number you want to see on the scale. But, that is deeply saddening because your body has so much to offer today regardless of where you are on your weight loss journey. And furthermore, you don’t get these days back. When you reach your goal weight, you don’t get to rewind and re-live these days, in your new body. You only have today, today. And, by the way, this body you’re in will always be the same body. Though it may be smaller one day, it’s still the same vessel that deserves love and appreciation. Here are ways to love your body, today, in the middle of a weight-loss journey.


Don’t wear clothes that mock you

You likely have some clothes you keep trying to wear, that never make you happy. You see them as a challenge, and something you must try to get into. How about, instead, you just see them as trash? Alright, don’t actually throw them away but, just stop putting them on right now. Wear clothes that make you feel beautiful and complement your figure. You should do that, every day, whether you’re at your goal weight or not.
