The picture above depicts how I'm feeling today, after knee surgery, a long bout with illness, and more tests to come I haven't been in the greatest frame of mind, but life goes on, and one has to keep trying to become healthier, no matter how one feels. I just keep telling myself there are better days ahead!
One thing I have to get a grip on is this feeling I have when I look in the mirror, I get angry with myself, and wonder just what it will take to get slimmed down and feeling healthier! I don't like the image I see and that is so bad for my self esteem, so I am going to consciously look in the mirror and see things I do like about myself. Today I smiled back at myself, and thought, well I do have a pleasant face, my eyes light up when I smile. My hair is healthy and shiny. my hands have served me well over the years, and have done many chores, looked after 4 children with loving care..wow I was on a roll! My skin wasn't too bad for a 67 year old..well that was my head, now tomorrow to look beyond the cellulite, flabby belly, and those rolls, can I keep making good remarks about my body? Well tomorrow will tell!
I go through these moods every now and again, but if I try to stay positive, things usually work them selves out..I will get the hang of things and turn things around, I am sure of that!
I just have to remember that I am so worth this journey of self discovery, and I know it will only happen if I want it too, if I apply myself, and do what is necessary to achieve my goals! I set the goals, now it is time to make it all come true!
