Gave myself a goodie.

Tuesday, November 02, 2010

Today I gave myself an "I love you" goodie.

I often forget to love myself. I get into these moods where I get so down on myself - I call them my "pity parties". I get so focused on what I've done "wrong" - that I can't even remember how much I do "right"

Deep down, on an intellectual level, I know what I do isn't "wrong" or "bad" - but after a lifetime of eating disorders, poor body image and an unhealthy "relationship" with food - emotionally, a day of eating too much, or eating unhealthy foods tares me apart.

Today I'm focusing on what I do, and what I've done "right". I need to be proud of how well I'm doing, and not beating myself up if I have a "bad" day.

Most important I need to love myself :)

    Thanks for sharing this. Loving yourself is mos def important! You will find that you may fall in love with yourself over and over again! We have to embrace who we are and how strong we are. Often times we do not give ourselves enough credit. Continue to love YOU for being YOU!

    Old habits are hard to break. Take in all the support you get, and believe it! You are just fine the way you are!

    I love your post. I had a moment on the 1st where I told myself this month I am really going to work, not as much on my diet which comes sort of natural to me now, but on where I want to be and what life goals I have. I want to be a positive person and I know I have issues with being negative so this is going to be a big change and a lot of work on my part. Your post was really helpful in reminding me to stay focused on the positive and not the negative things that life can throw at you.
