Day #19 - Fat Talk Free Week Begins

"It’s time we take control over our own destinies, our own bodies, and our own inner dialogues. We’re changing the conversation to create a more positive body image for ourselves, our mothers, our sisters, our daughters, and our friends. " End Fat Talk Week.

Things I love about myself:

My strong legs that allow me to run everyday.

My short black hair that makes me feel unique and pretty.

My strong arms that allow me to pick up my dogs.

My freckles that give my face more character.

Can you list 4 things that you love about your body? I KNOW you can...
