I am not going to sugar coat anything anymore for myself

Thursday, May 03, 2012

I am so outgoing and I really do feel very beautiful on the inside but the outside has some catching up to do. I want to get off this computer and really have something to strive for; for myself not my kids not anyone but for me. I am burned out I am angry about becoming a single mother. Don't get me wrong i love my kids and I give them 100% of everything because it's not their fault. I just am frustrated with society and labels that are put on me because of my single mother status. I want to walk in a room and not feel like I don't belong and stop the negative self talk I do. I want to stop crying and over eating because I am unhappy with where I am at right now. Most of all I want to get some self esteem I feel like I am 38 and I have nothing to add in peoples lives. This is why I eat and this is why I don't buy me cute clothes or anything... I just wish that I would of made better choices in my life I have to move forward and stop beating myself up....

    Thank you I appreciate your insight and yes I am moving forward. I think when I was 25 I thought I would of been a much better off at 38 years. People tell me I expect to much and I am to hard on myself. I am setting goals and I am working out and most of all I am in forward motion. I just had to say what I have been feeling for a while now and your right it's time to make an impact :) emoticon

    I totally agreed with you stop beating yourself up. You have had your pity party. Hooray… Now, it’s time to show you that you are beautiful inside and out. There is an opportunity in the middle of every difficult. So take baby steps, start using the journal to log the unhealthy foods you associate with negative emotions. Next week, take an item from your list and select either a healthier food/snack or workout to substitute the unhealthy one. I use to eat junk food when I get upset. Now, I will have one of the following a cup of green ginger tea; cup warm lemon water freshly squeezed; glass of homemade fruit and veggie juice. It helps curb my habit of eating a lot of junk. Ah….a walk outside in the fresh air will do wonders 15mins; 30mins when you are in a negative mood. Relax in the evening after you get the kids to bed. Take a nice bath and mediate. There are so many tools and teams on the site to help you. So roll up your sleeve and laugh to keep from crying. You have good things coming to you; stop looking back and look forward to the best is yet to come. Good Luck…I am cheering for you as I know you have the strength and power to excel!
