Baby Belly (or not)

Yesterday, I was feeling pretty good about how I looked. I had a pretty dress on and was having a good hair day. Then, as I was standing talking to Jason in the hallway at work, a coworker (who I really don't know all that well) asked me if I was pregnant. WHAT?! I laughed it off and told her no, I just have a permanent baby belly. She felt bad (or acted like she did) and tried to play it off. Jason seemed to think it was hilarious but I was just taken aback. However, the more I thought about it, the more it got to me. So I did what any other self respecting woman would do; I posted a picture on Instagram.

Seriously, if you are ever feeling bad about yourself, go to IG. I love all of my followers, they are so sweet and I got the best comments and my day was instantly better. By the way, the dress was a thrift shop find for $5. Stylish and cheap, my favorite.

I have taken several hard looks at myself in the mirror since I started on the whole "weight loss journey" last year and I've come to some conclusions. I like my body as it is. I am soft and rounded and womanly. I will probably always have a round belly and that's okay. I know that I could change my body to become leaner and harder, but I also know that it would be a ton of work. At this point, I'm not ready to commit to that. It is all about mindset. I'm in a comfortable spot and when I'm ready to change, I know I have to move out of my comfort zone. I also know that I have a great support system should I choose to do that.

Good luck to all the ladies out there starting on the Advocare cleanse today! It just wasn't for me, but I do love the Spark drink in Grape. You can always contact Ashley if you want to get on board.
