I was at the laundry mat today (our well is running low on water) and I read an article in SHAPE magazine about Jennifer Love Hewitt. I really like her show, Ghost Whisperer, and I think she is beautiful as well as realistically in shape. Anyway, in the article she said that every night before bed she thinks of three things she likes about her appearance and that it makes her wake up feeling more confident about herself. So, here are my three things:
1. I like my long hair.
2. I think my face is pretty.
3. Boys seem to like my backside (even if I don't!).
On my journey to lose weight I have learned that it is not just my outside that I need to work on. In order to achieve any lasting lifestyle changes, I need to work on my inside as well. I like the person that I see on the inside and I want others to see it to. So, here are the three things I am reminding myself to do every morning when I wake up:
1. Be kind.
2. Be helpful to others.
3. Be good to myself.
All of these things may seem simple to a lot of people, but I am a work in progress and I am trying to take small steps to better myself on the inside and out!
