Virtually every woman on the planet is insecure about her weight. We all want to look a certain way, and while it's great that you're trying to lose weight to feel healthier, you shouldn't wait until you're thinner to do certain things. Everything that you could do as a skinny person, you can do right now, too. Never let your weight (or your insecurity) stop you from doing these 7 things:
1. Wearing a Two Piece
You don't have to wait until you drop ten pounds to buy that gorgeous two piece you saw at the store. There's no rule that says you need to wear a one-piece, or avoid wearing a bathing suit altogether, just because you're a little heavier than the other women at the beach. You can rock a two piece, no matter how big or small you are. Don't be afraid to show the world your beautiful skin.
2. Going on Dates
Don't use your weight as an excuse to avoid talking to your crush. If you like someone, you should go after them. You don't have to lose weight or apply ten pounds of makeup before you start a conversation with them. You want them to like you for your personality, anyway. If a guy won't go out with you while you're heavy, then he's not worth going out with at all.
3. Going to the Gym
Even though the gym is your ticket to losing weight, it can be scary to enter one when everybody else with a membership has muscles. However, you shouldn't pay attention to the strangers exercising around you. They're there to work out, not to make fun of you. If they glance at you, they're probably just admiring your willingness to change your lifestyle.
4. Wearing a Revealing Dress
There aren't any clothes that are reserved for thin people. If you want to wear a crop top, you can. If you want to wear a tight dress, you can. Don't let your weight hold you back from rocking an awesome outfit. You're allowed to wear anything you want to wear.
5. Eating a Snack
You're allowed to treat yourself to dessert. You don't have to deprive yourself of all of the foods you love, just because you're trying to lose weight. No, you can't eat entire gallons of ice cream every week, but you can certainly indulge in a cone or two when you feel like it.
6. Getting Pictures Taken
Don't avoid taking selfies, because you think you look ugly. You're a beautiful woman, no matter how big or small you are. If you want to capture a fun moment, then snap that picture. Don't miss out on the chance to get likes on Instagram.
7. Loving Yourself
You're worthy of love, despite how many insecurities you have. You can't wait until you're skinny to say that you love yourself. You should love yourself right now, because you're a beautiful person inside and out. You need to realize that you're a valuable human being, because you deserve to be loved, especially by yourself.
You can't let your self-consciousness get in the way of your happiness. Have you ever let your weight stop you from doing something in the past? Then maybe it's time to push your fears aside and go do that thing right now!
