BMJ: Day 14 – Banning a Phrase From Your Vocabulary.

Today in my Beautiful Me Journal, I’m going to commit to removing the phrase “Have You Lost Weight?” from my vocabulary. Let’s admit it ladies, nothing brings more attention to our looks or our weight than someone asking a seemingly innocuous  question like this. Am I right?

Honestly, I really appreciate the author in this book suggesting that this is not a situational conversation anyone wants to have. So, instead of asking if something changed, I’m going to do what she suggests and simply offer a compliment – the one she specifically uses is, “You look great!”  I love it. It’s simple and not uncomfortable.
