And by that I don't mean skinny, for the first time in years.

Truth be told, I'm a little larger than I would like to be.  I've been 5'10 since middle school, and had a chubby phase (don't we all), and I think that the combination of those things made me hyper aware of how much space I was taking up.

Sometimes I still am.  I'll be the first to admit that I'm jealous of my petite friends - I'll never be petite, no matter how much I work out or diet away.  My hips will always be wide, I will always be tall.

I'm learning that part of health is how you talk to yourself, too.  I'm trying not to put myself down, even on days when I want to.  I'm trying to talk to myself positively.

But I'm healthy, and I'm so grateful for that. My body works the way it's supposed to, even if it doesn't always look exactly how I wish it did.  I'm respecting my body by getting enough rest, exercising regularly, and eating well.

And that includes ice cream sometimes.
