When I was little I had the skinniest legs and the biggest pot belly! As I got older my "belly" was always what I was most self conscious of. I can actually remember sitting in my room crying and crying over my stomach and how big it was! I laugh and feel sorry for that teenager because part of it was sad but honestly most of it was hormones and typical feelings for a girl that age. I can recognize that now but it took me many years to realize it. 

I tell this story because I think everyone has something about their body that they hate or are embarrassed of or wish they could change. After I posted one of today's pics on IG, I had two friends comment on how big the "gals" looked. We were laughing about it but my first  inside thought was "gross-they make me look so fat!" Why is it that my mind went somewhere negative?! I'm sure there are women out there that would love to have a little "more" in that department. We are all so critical of ourselves and I have definitely come a long ways but it's obviously something I still deal with at times.

Which brings me to a new concept that Jenny Sanzo of The Flower City Fashionista launches today. It's called the #NoMoreLies campaign. Taken from the page created for this is states the #NoMoreLies movement "challenges the narrow socially constructed ideas of beauty, demanding a more healthy, real, and diverse portrayal of women in the media, and teaching women and young girls to love their bodies, break the cycle of hate, and stop believing the lies.  Share your personal struggles with body image and your commitment to change the narrative for the next generation of women by adding your voice to the #NoMoreLies Link up." 

I hope you will take the time to share your story in order to help inspire those teenage girls crying in their bedrooms over how they look and feel about their bodies. Now a Mom, I realize that there are so many more important ideals we can be instilling in not only our girls but boys as well. Teaching them that looks are not what make a person can be one of the best gifts you give to your children. Please join in!
