Find yourself putting more weight into the small things than you maybe should be? Or feeling like you’re just somehow not enough? Comparison can be a sneaky b*tch, and that’s why we’re talking about overcoming the OG thief of joy, at your wedding and into marriage.
When I was 10 a girl in my class told me that I should eat more salads so I could lose weight and look like her. I remember as a kid in swim team the boys laughing when I would walk past in my swimsuit because my thighs jiggled. In high school, girls would complain about having to buy a size 10 prom dress because that was a “fat size”, when in reality I was working out, dieting and praying I would be able to buy a dress that would be below a size 12.
It 6:55 in the morning, I was running late and it was my first class. Trying to find the location where the trainer and other attendees were meeting was making my heart pound. I was going to be the newbie and heck - I was going to be the most unconditioned, least athletic, very late newbie the class had ever seen. As I saw the red flag marking the meet-up spot in the distance I thought to myself, “I could just skip and go to Starbucks instead.”
