Dark chocolate
by: Jess

Hey Makayla =)
I don't really know how much 20 pounds is because I use a different set of measurements...

I used to set out the same kind of goals but later once I lost it I was never able to maintain it and I just gained more later. So I changed my goal to have an overall healthier lifestyle (diet and exercise) and let that take care of everything else...

What I found worked for me was eating foods that made you feel more full and cut away cravings. Things like; Pears, eggs, avocado, almonds, oatmeal and my most favourite: DARK CHOCOLATE =)

If you are one of those people that love/like or okay with dark chocolate go for it instead of milk because it has anti oxidants, fills hunger and cuts away cravings for salty and oily food. But don't eat too much... just like a block/cube a day. But if you arn't just ignore all I just said.

ALSO remember that wherever you are now, how ever life is around you or however you react to the mirror that God loves you in each and every season. And in each and every season you are beautiful to him... just like how a Father loves his newborn daughter that he holds in his arms, and he also loves her when she is a toddler a little person. He loves her still when she is a young but taller child and he loves her when she is a teenager and as she becomes more of an adult... That love never increases or lessens from our God but it is always the same, and it doesn't change when he looks at you for he always finds you amazing.

I used to be a person that measured how I would feel about myself on the scale, or the mass of my tummy and the clearness or unclearness of my face. And... this is pretty silly but the reactions I got from guys.

Once I learnt that the way God sees me remains the same and that our life here on earth is not a 'win or lose' situation it is a learning situation. A place we are ever learning and growing. I've been able to also love and accept myself in every season and not be so hard on myself when I make mistakes. That was probably a bit random or unexpected but to make it clearer if you didn't get anything I just said:


And so do I =)
