Just profound “ity”. No, it’s not a typo, and yes, I made this word up.

My daughter and I were having a conversation about women and weight loss. Quite an intense conversation which unleashed a profound comment from my girl. She said, “look how easily we go from grateful to greedy“. She was talking specifically about weight loss and our reaction to what happens on the scale. We get annoyed when it doesn’t move down fast enough for our expectations. We’re happy the first week of a diet when the weight comes off quickly. Then after that, it’s all downhill with trashy thoughts that fill our heads.

How many times have you stepped on the scale and complained in disappointment that you ONLY lost one or two pounds? How often do the little thoughts in your head shout out, “I can’t believe I only lost a pound and I was perfect!”?

How to Feel Confident in Lingerie No Matter Your Size

Bra in a bagValentine’s day is around the corner, there are plenty of reminders of how women “should” look in lingerie–thin, busty, and flat-stomached. You don’t need me to tell you most of us don’t look like models, but this fact doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy feeling hot in a sexy bra and a cute pair of panties. Everyone deserves to feel great in their underwear, so here are a few tips to help you get there.

Invest some real time shopping for a bra. It can be tiresome, embarrassing, and draining, but the pay-off will be huge. Having the right bra makes a big impact on your figure. I’ll even go out on a limb and say it’s the most important garment to invest in. So even if you plan on losing weight, spend a little extra on something high quality. It’s best to go to a department store with a big selection and get a professional measurement. Keep in mind that cup sizes aren’t standard, and can vary from brand to brand. Be sure to bring along several different tops and try them all on over any bra you’re considering buying.

Many women buy bras that are too big, because they perceive these as more comfortable. Don’t fall into this trap, a bra shouldn’t shift around on your body. Having lingerie that fits right will go a long way towards making you feel more confident.
