The number on your scales isn’t all that. They’re sometimes too good too be true, and they’re not exactly how you should measure your fitness and your health.
Kelsey Wells, a 26-year old fitness blogger and interior designer, has showed her Instagram followers that the number on the scales shouldn’t be the basis for how people see their bodies. Previously, the My Sweat Life blogger posted a reminder on her Instagram about how one’s weight isn’t something that shows one’s health.
The fitness blogger’s aforementioned Instagram post
In the photo, she showed three different bikini shots of how her body looked like two months after giving birth at 145lbs, when she reached her goal of 122lbs, and how she currently looks like at 140lbs
She said in her caption,
“I am 5′ 7” and weigh 140 lbs. When I first started bikini body guide. I was 8 weeks post partum and 145 lbs. I weighed 130 before getting pregnant, so based on nothing besides my own warped perception, I decided my “goal weight” should be 122 and to fit into my skinniest jeans. Well after a few months of BBG and breastfeeding, I HIT IT and I fit into those size 0 jeans. Well guess what? I HAVE GAINED 18 POUNDS SINCE THEN. EIGHT FREAKING TEEN. Also, I have gone up two pant sizes and as a matter of fact I ripped those skinny jeans wide open just the other week trying to pull them up over my knees.”

Kelsey mentioned that in the past, her weight dictated her self-esteem and she was easily let down whenever she realized she had gained weight. She’s proud to say that even if she had gained 18lbs more than her goal weight, she’s happier, healthier, and more comfortable in her own skin than in the past.

So, that being said, even if you’re seeing a high number on your scale, it doesn’t usually mean you’re already unhealthy or you don’t look good in your own skin. What matters most is how you feel about your own body and to be proud of what you have.
This Man Devoted His Life to Burying Aborted Babies And Rescuing Hundreds For 15 Years
He’s showing us all what the art of selflessness is all about.
Vietnamese building contractor Tong Phuoc Phuc became a miracle worker by accident. In 2001, he accompanied his wife to a hospital. While he waited for her, he noticed several pregnant women going to another room. When the women came out of the room, they were no longer pregnant. Yet, they were not carrying babies.
Tong was horrified when he realized that the women had undergone abortion. Still, he didn't judge these women. He knew they were driven by desperate circumstances.
However, Tong's heart broke for the aborted babies. So, he asked Vietnamese authorities to allow him to bury the aborted babies. Fortunately, they granted his selfless request.

Dog Keeps Running Away Everyday. Where He’s Been Going Left Them in Tears!
Saki is a rescue dog set on a temporary home, when she started running away they were startled to find out the reason why
There have been countless inspiring stories about dogs' loyalty and how they truly are the best friend any man could need. The furry creatures are not just fun to pet and play with, but also to help in serving humans and being their helping hand, or should I say paw.
A stray German Shepherd puppy named Saki was chosen for training by the National Disaster Search Dog Foundation (NDSDF) after she was rescued from the streets. She was given a part on a dog team that searches for people who were lost after natural and manmade disasters. She was first set to a temporary home while waiting for her training on search and rescue to begin.
She lived with Dennie Fiddler and everything seemed to be fine until two weeks later. Dennie has observed an unusual behaviour from Saki. It seemed that Saki has been escaping from his home and running away. He was so confused about where could Saki be going.
