New Goal Set

Wednesday, February 10, 2010

So some of my goals is to have a healthier diet, drink more water and lose my first 10 pounds....ok no big deal, these common goals for weight loss. But today I thought of a goal that would seem like a no-brainer but did not occur to me until this afternoon.

Today I went to the grocery store since I realized I need to stock up on some healthier food options in my house. Who was there but my ex-EVIL mother-in-law (she was my husbands step mother, now his father is deceased so she no longer she's us). She didn't see me and I avoided her, not because I didn't want to talk to her but because I didn't feel good about how I looked. I have gained weight since we last saw her, not to mention I was dressed pretty frumpy with no makeup.

It then occurred to me that this was not the first time I had felt embarrassed running into someone. So right there I set a goal for myself that I want to have confidence in my appearance. I don't want to feel self conscience about myself.

I know that this is a goal that will come as I move a long this journey and meet my other goals....but it's a goal all the same.

    Yes, it's important to feel good about how we look. I've always struggles with body image problems even tho I haven't really been much overweight since I was 11. I live in a small town and never go into town shopping or anything without some make-up and at least my" going to town" jeans.. pam
