I didn’t realize how negatively my weight had affected my self-esteem and self-image. I stepped on the scales this morning and saw that I had lost 3 pounds and didn’t believe it! I was so happy for about 5 minutes-then I began to COMPARE! “Others in my 5% summer weight loss have lost more than me and besides, I have only lost 16 pounds in ten months-that’s pathetic!” I said to myself. Then I heard myself and thought , “Is that me I hear saying that negative stuff?!”
I have been reading TEXASHSMOMOF3 posts and she just pushes past all the negativity in her life to find the positives. I can do that too! I have been eating pretty good meals and getting more veggies in. I have been exercising every day. And with God on my side, I WILL be below 300 by January 1st!!
