i will no longer turn my back on myself

Monday, May 31, 2010

well i never have been very good at writing in a diary or blog i just am not a writer. but here i go.

i was looking in the mirror today. and realized that i was looking in a mirror. lol

let me explain. after i had my daughter i was preoccupied with all the first time mommy stuff and what was best for her. well sometime in their i lost sight of me and when i finally took time to look at myself in the mirror i didn't like what i saw so i turned my back and never looked back. that was until i took another good look in march and decided i could no longer avoid myself any longer.

so i loaded my daughter into the stroller (that has been poorly treated over the last three years) and took a walk. started watching what i ate(bye bye coca cola) and made a doctors appointment for MYSELF for the first time in three years.

which brings me to today,exactly 2 months later, actually looking in a mirror without wanting to turn my back. i was actually liking the changes i saw in myself. it brought tears to my eyes and i decided right then and there that I WILL NO LONGER TURN MY BACK ON MYSELF.

    That's great. You have to take care of yourself so you can take of others.

    Good for you. Perhaps the most important thing is that you will teach your daughter to take care of herself too!

    WooHoo for you! Keep going forward because there is no limit to what you can do when you believe in yourself. Think about how good you will feel personally when you get fit and what a great role model you'll be for your loved ones.

    Keep looking. You are worth it. Keep it up and tell that person in the mirror that you love them, every day.
