Disgusted with myself

Friday, March 09, 2012

The one thing that forces me to acknowledge just how fat I've let myself get is shaving my legs. Every lump and bump, every bit I can't reach without major contortions or see reminds me that once upon a time, I did this 4-5x/week and it was a 15 minute ritual. The logical part of my brain tells me that I should use this as motivation, but at the moment I'm stuck on the disgusted part.

Gym, tomorrow. Right then.

    The journey is long but there are many moments to see along the way. I noticed in this last year, my wedding rings fit, I can tie my shoes more comfortably, I have collar bones, eventually even the belly will give in a tiny bit, your toes can seem skinnier, and you can again shave your legs daily. You will randomly be surprised by what you may spot about yourself along the way. Enjoy the journey and know that we share it with you.

    I had a bad habit of focusing on my fat middle. No matter how much weight I lose, it never seems to shrink. I know it does because my clothes fit better. This time around, I hope to be able to focus on the positive. Join me in celebrating our victories!!! emoticon

    Once you get down a routine losing weight becomes much less complicated. Using your negative emotions can help in the beginning, however, they can also lead to feelings of guilt and shame. These feelings can then lead to depression and a breakdown of resolve. Be careful not to focus strictly on the negative.

    don't give up. Let this feeling become your motivation to get your life on track. I used the disgusted feelings I had when I looked in the mirror as my motivation. It has really paid off and I know it will for you, too.

I'm here to help if you want to talk. :)
