You want to know something? Even when I was pushing 200 pounds (left) I still thought I was hot shit. Sure I’m stronger and healthier now, but losing weight didn’t make me smarter, more beautiful, funnier, or a better person. And in 7 more years, when my body is even more kickass than it is now, I’m going to look back and be appreciative of the love and respect I had for my 2018 body even whilst working towards bigger and better goals. If you can’t learn to love yourself right now where you’re at, you’re not going to magically find that love no matter how many pounds you drop on the scale.
