If I exercise more I would feel better about myself and not care what others think.

There's more to it

Brianna --

May I start by saying that is a beautiful name?

It's hard to believe, but exercising won't really change how you feel about yourself. Take my sister for example.

She's always been self-conscious of her looks, even though she was always the most attractive of us girls. She started exercising after her first child to get back in shape. That was over 25 years ago, and she exercises almost every day.

But try to tell her she's beautiful or attractive [which she is] and she'll deny it. The world is full of beautiful women who can't accept their own beauty.

Why? Because beauty and self-image aren't about how you look on the outside. It's about liking who you are on the inside ... accepting the wondrous creature God made each of us to be.

Psalm 139:13-14 [The Message] says beautifully how we are to see ourselves:

Oh yes, you shaped me first inside, then out;
you formed me in my mother's womb.
I thank you, High God—you're breathtaking!
Body and soul, I am marvelously made!
I worship in adoration—what a creation!

May you begin to see yourself, Brianna, as God created you -- a beauty inside and out. Only when you can see that will you truly feel better about yourself and not care what others think.

God bless you, Brianna.
