Link Up Announcement: You Are Beautiful

I am really, like bouncing in my seat & smile across my face so big that it hurts, excited about an announcement today.

Lauren, from Lot 48 and I are starting a bi-weekly linkup called "You Are Beautiful."
Our goal with this linkup is to spread positive vibes while struggling through female issues, primarily weight loss and body image issues. When you are struggling with the scale you tend to feel alone, when in reality, there are so many of us out there feeling the exact same thing day in and day out.

Weight loss isn't easy, just like a lot of other things in life. It seems to be the number one thing most women struggle with and wish they could change about themselves. Instead of judging other women for their choices with the struggle-such as which diet they are on, what they choose to eat on the weekends, or their time spent in the gym...why aren't we building each other up?
Body image isn't the only thing us females deal with. There are so many factors that can affect our moods and behaviors. Infertility, abuse, struggles in our careers...but we are all beautiful at the end of the day.
Let's be honest with one another.
Allow yourself to let it all out and share how you are feeling. You don't know who else you are helping...

Details about the linkup:

  • Bi-weekly on Thursdays. Next week, February 5th will be the first day and then the 19th, and so on.
  • Grab a button and link back to our blogs. Super huge hugs and a big shotout to Ashley from The Grits Blog for designing our sparkly button of love.
  • You Are Beautiful
  • The linkup will last one week, so you have until then to add your posts.
  • Whether you are dealing with weight loss struggles, anxiety issues, or just want to spread some positivity about what's going on in your are welcome to join us!
The blogging community is such a wonderful place, and I hope our honesty and sharing the raw stories about our struggles will help support and empower others.
We are all beautiful.

I look forward to reading everyone's posts next week. Join us on Thursday February 5th for the first linkup.
