Motivation Monday - What if You Wore What You Weigh?

I finally had some time this morning to sit down and read some of the blogs of my favorite people.  July was a crazy busy month, so to have this first of the month to relax, have some coffee, and I as I scrolled through my reader, this post hit me hard.

What would your shirt say?
Over at Team Giles, my online friend Lauren posted What if you wore your weight?  As I read through it, my eyes starting tearing up, as they are now just telling all of you about it.  I cannot imagine wearing my weight over 10 years ago.  I was ashamed and self-loathing.  Even know, the postpartum depression of having to start over can get to me, but I'm still over 60 lbs less after having Dylan than I was after having Liam.

I truly believe from my own experiences that we cannot achieve unless we believe!  If we are stuck in a rut of beating ourselves up, and not allowing ourselves to love who we are, we will never achieve the level of health and weight we hope to accomplish.  It truly is mind over matter when it comes to ability to get where we want to be in life.

Yes, it's true we are more than just a number on a scale, but what does that number represent to you?  What hidden secrets, shameful practices, or untruths are you telling yourself to give an excuse to not being where you want to be?  Make sure to check out Lauren's post, and tell her Cher sent you!!
