As you strive to become healthier what matters the most is how you see yourself, not how magazines or media tell you how to look. You are your best self! You don't need to compare yourself to airbrushed and photoshopped models or celebrities. I know it's difficult to start a new healthy routine in your life but it is worth it! And don't get discouraged when you first start and you feel as if you aren't seeing results. But you ARE making progress, your changing the way your body feels and your mind at first then you increase your energy and ability to do things you thought you couldn't do! Take measurements and track your progress because (maybe it's just me) I never felt like I was losing weight when I first started my health regiment. Especially if you're losing 1-2lbs a week, its not like after a week or two or three you see a ton of progress. It still sort of looks the same but it is happening!
