1 It’s Okay Not to Love Every Part of You...
But remember you shouldn’t be too hard on yourself. The world won’t end if you eat that piece of cake. There's more to life than constantly worrying about how you look. Everyone has rolls when they sit down, so stop judging yours so harshly

Don't forget to drink plenty of water, too.

Because you are beautiful!

Don’t wait for someone else to save you, be able to save yourself.
