Recapturing Beauty Day 1

The Challenge:
Today, start your journal for the challenge. Write for at least ten minutes and express gratitude for all the things your body allows you to do. Refrain from weighing yourself today. In fact, refrain from weighing yourself during the 10 days of the challenge.

WHY: Recording your thoughts helps you process your feelings. You will be surprised what surfaces when you give time and voice to your thoughts. When we focus on weight, the number never seems to be the right one. We don't have to subject ourselves to that grief-- weight is not always an accurate measure of health or body fat, and we would do well to eliminate the obsession of weighing ourselves altogether.

"There is nothing in this world as personal, as nurturing or as life changing
as the influence of a righteous woman."
-M. Russell Ballard.
