You are probably wondering, why 170? Napoleon Bonaparte was 170 cm tall. The average height of a refrigerator is 170cm. 170 lbs is about half the weight of a panda bear.  170 mph is about the speed of a helicopter . 170 mph is 2 times the speed of a Curveball…170 is also how much I weighed this morning.

The reason I spouted out all these facts about the number 170 is because  it is apart of many different things. It does not define just define your weight. I have been bigger, I have been smaller, I have been thinner, and I have been fatter. I fluctuated below and above 170. But now being at 170 I feel more beautiful and stronger than ever. I am not defined by my weight. I am a girl who has many more dimensions to me then what I weigh at that time.  This has been a hard thing for me to grasp over the years because I use to feel like my weight defined me. It held me hostage every moment of the day, telling me how to feel and how to live. You wonder how could your weight tell you how to feel and live? Well it affects what you eat, how you dress, and how you  feel about yourself-when you look in the mirror when you are getting ready and mentally tell yourself you look fat and ugly. This is not something you should say to yourself when you look into a mirror at any point of the day.By letting your weight affect you in this way you are letting it completely control you. You should live your life living not worrying about your weight.That is the key even if you are trying to lose weight or not. It is about balance and being healthy. Right now at 170lbs I am the healthiest I have ever been and I actually weight the same as I did in high school.But now the 170 is mostly muscle instead of fat.That is what weight lifting has taught me, is to love myself at any weight and anytime of the day. It taught me to not care what the scale said but how I feel on the inside. It is tough and I have my moments but when I get into the weight room if all goes away. I feel strong, I feel beautiful, I am beautiful. And you are too. You just have to find what you love and enjoy every minute of it. You have to believe in who you are and what you live for. Do not let how clothes fit you, how you look in a bathing suit, or without any clothes on effect how you feel about yourself. That scale and weight is just a number,learn to live healthy without worrying about that number. 110,150,200,230- you are beautiful no matter what. Believe that ♥
