It’s been a big week so far for the Confident You Body Confidence challengers. Wow. We’ve talked about everything from our insecurities and body shaming to celebrating our body wins and those people who love us no matter what. To say I’m proud of where we are as we enter the home stretch is an understatement.
As part of the challenge, I sent out a crazy number of requests for body confidence related quote, thoughts, and tips. The people you see below are those that responded (I could have done better representation-wise, I will spread the net wider again next time) and became our daily poster child. It’s funny how with a pre-planned idea of daily emails, that these quotes all found a way to perfectly fit the days.
But then, that’s what happens when you take some time out of your every day to examine something as important as your relationship with your body. I’ve seen people in the challenge group change their mind about beliefs they’ve held for decades because of something someone has said or a thought they hadn’t had before. So take some time today, whether you choose to join us in the challenge or not, and consider your relationship with your body.
