Look at the many different body sizes in this one photo. My BFF and I weigh the same but I'm taller and can handle the weight better than she can. It's time to take a realistic picture of you.
I know that each of us have something we hate about our bodies, BUT WE STILL NEED TO LOVE OURSELVES! Loving yourself is so important. If we don't love ourselves, then how can you spread love to other people? What message are you sending to your children? Or your children's friends?
My loving myself has always been in food. I'm learning more and more how to change that and still know that I love myself. It's so important to love myself in a better way. I have a horrible addiction with sugar and unhealthy snacks. I am sad to say I've let myself go in the wrong direction over summer, but I'm getting back to where I need to be.
Blogging, journaling, and writing my feelings down is helping a lot. I will keep that up. I'm also going to start tracking my food again and making a concerted effort to keep loving myself like I need to.
If you find yourself stuck and not able to move forward, talk to a BFF or a really great friend who you know has your back. Listen to their advice. Talk it through with them. You need to get moving on the right path to loving yourself in the right way.
If you say, "I don't love myself", what would you tell your BFF who says the same thing to herself? .......Exactly. Tell yourself that same thought.
You matter. I matter. Let's matter together and move forward today.
