Girly Contest

I follow Girlgetstrong on Twitter. She has a very interesting approach on a very real and important project: allowing women to feel empowered, especially those that have been used and abused.

I entered a contest they are having to win an ipod touch. Here is my entry:

Sensei is sensibly sexy.

Now, I'm sure being sexy is sensible, especially if you are doing it for yourself and not for someone else. The mistake that many people make is doing something to look better for others when we really need to be doing it for ourselves. Our self image is the most important thing, which is why many people fail when trying because they are so hard on themselves. We usually are not nearly as stringent on others.

It's great to try things and use things to help us reach our goals, but we need to do one thing first. We need to make sure that our reasons for doing weight loss are sound and self-induced not society induced. Then, when you start if you feel yourself fail ask yourself: "Is this cupcake worth as much to me as being healthy and thinner?" If the answer is yes, then eat it. If the answer is no, put it down and celebrate the essence of you.

So, how will I promote this? You'll find this on my blog... :)
