We all can be so hard on ourselves. It is so easy to pinch our fat, look in the mirror and just be discouraged because we haven't hit our goal yet. How many times have we tried a diet or start a workout routine to just feel defeated 2-3 weeks later. Well, unfortunately progress takes time and being patient is hard when you have spent so many years being unhappy.
I tried on a pair of jeans this morning and I felt like a stuff sausage. It really made me upset because I have been doing so well and they used to fit and now I can barely squeeze my thighs in them. All the self-hate and negative self talk started to roll in...."You are never going to get to your goal"..."Why do you try so hard, nothing is going to work".... But then I stopped it! I didn't want to go down that road and have that ugly cycle of self-hate ruin what I have accomplished so far.
I know if I want to change I need to stop being so hard on myself. I think everyone should give themselves a break and acknowledge their good traits instead of focusing on things that will only stall their progress.
I'm going to state 3 things that I love about myself and if you feel up to it I hope you follow my lead!
#1 I love the fact that no matter what if I fail one day, I pick myself up and keep trying!
#2 I love the fact I have an internal desire to help others
#3 I love the fact that I have curves....if you didn't know....bootys are so in!
