I got this email from one of my VIP clients this week, and I had to share it with you.
“Okay, I totally get it now.
I finally am starting to get over the whole “I can’t believe I wear a size 16, gross.” I just ordered tons of stuff including lingerie because I’m going to celebrate the sh*t out of my body.
So while celebrating my body out with my new awesome guy friend in my new size 16 outfit that I could actually breathe in, this guy started chatting me up. This guy turned out to be Gavin Degraw (famous singer dude “Oh chariot”). He was with this skinny blonde thang (super pretty and basically my old idea of perfection). I was just being super duper myself because I wasn’t going to pass out from the tightness around my waist. Anyway homeboy tried to pick me up – I was like say what?!
Size 16 me vs. size 2 blonde.
I was like, okay Sarah may have a point about this whole ‘live more’ before you weigh less thing.
Yeah major breakthrough for me today. I have this massive limiting belief that guys only notice me one way -skinny – but today I was proven wrong. It was me beaming and being me and showing up fully regardless of what size I am [bolded by Sarah for emphasis].
I honestly never thought I would get here. Love you lots.”
If you want to start turning heads here’s what you gotta do:
1. Understand that it’s not about how you look, but how you are radiating, tweet it. Stand up straight, laugh, be in a good mood, think about WHO you are and what makes you special.
2. Wear clothes that fit you. I know you have this idea that you don’t want to “waste money” by buying clothes before you’re at your ideal weight. But just as my client said here, if you spend all day not being able to breathe there’s no way you can relax and shine.
3. Leave the house. I know so many women who feel safer sitting on the couch all day, just trying not to eat, and spend most of the day complaining how lonely they are. The outside world is not as scary as it seems. If people are staring, it’s not because they are judging, they are just noticing your radiance. Go sit in a cafe, go to a farmer’s market, go window shopping, go to the bookstore.
You are more than your size, all you have to do is remember your awesomeness, turn up the volume and everyone’s gonna want to be next to you.
In the comments below I want to know what makes you feel like you’re beaming. What do you say to yourself? What do you wear? How do you remember how awesome you are?
Can’t wait to hear.
