I am choosing self-love instead of self-abuse:
I've abused myself emotionally for so long, that is hard to now love who I am. I am proud of myself for all the work I've done, changing my life to live a health lifestyle of working out and eating well everyday. I love my body for being able to run 1o miles or do a 1:30 min plank! I am learning to praise myself more for all my accomplishments instead of focusing on my flaws! I'm not perfect and I never will be. This summer I have been working a lot on my confidence and strength in who I am. For the longest time I looked for acceptance in others, when I needed to accept myself for who I am! I still have days where I feel like I am a 235 lb person, but I know I am making progress in realizing I'm not. My mind seems to be my biggest problem because I never felt like I was worth it. Since losing 88 pounds, I've discovered I do not need anyone's approval and I am beautiful person of tremendous worth! I just thought I would share some of my emotional aspect of my weight loss, since I realized it is a lot more than a physical journey!
