That's right. Today I am loving myself. It is my rest day from exercise. I turned the alarm off and slept in. I got up at 9 and enjoyed breakfast. I only ate 3/4's of it, found myself full before finishing. Because today is about me I am not giving myself permission to go off my healthy eating. That will be enforced. But just for once I am I am allowing myself to be free of the worries of the week past and week to come. I am indulging myself in my own mind, thinking of good things, feeling good about the progress I have made, not the failures. Maybe the scale isn't going in the direction I want but there are other things going right in my life. I have a great husband, who loves me despite everything, and treats me kindly. I have a loving, if dysfunctional, family. I have wonderful pets who love me like family and are treated as such. Finances may be rough, but I am working on a plan. I've never in my life, that I can remember said I loved myself, but today that changes. Today I love myself. Maybe if I take time to "believe" that, it will carry through to another day, and then another day. But, for today, it is all about me!
