It's been several years since I weighed what I do today. 193 has never felt so good! But I'm continuing to push hard to see those 180's.
I was trying so hard to see them before February 1st. But, I promised myself I wouldn't be disappointed if I worked hard and fell a little short. I knew it was a big goal.
That's always been something that holds me back. The 'what if.' What if I put everything into getting healthy and I still don't like who I see.
I've learned I need to see myself through the eyes of another, maybe even God. I don't usually get religious on here, but today I'm making an exception. I think about the person he made me to be. I think about how I sell his creation short when I'm overly critical of myself. I think about what he would say to me. I even have been thinking about what I'd say to others...and then I try to treat myself the same way.
Life is hard. Don't make it harder by being so critical of yourself. Bodies are amazing, and strong. My body has made and carried FOUR beautiful babies. What a miracle! I am learning to love my body for what it is. It's a learning process, but I've come a long way these last few months.
Do yourself a favor, glance at that person in the mirror and tell them thank you! Because you are strong, and your body is amazing!
