Resolving to be Happy

Wednesday, January 02, 2013

I could be ashamed to get back on this site. I could be upset that I fell off track yet again & let my clothes get tight. I could beat myself up & give myself hell, get on a ridiculously strict new fad diet & start the yo-yo cycle all over again. But guess what? Thatís not how I roll.

I didnít resolve to lose weight this New Year. I resolved to treat myself better. I resolved to be kinder, more patient, & more understanding of the fact that I am a human being and just as deserving of love & respect as anyone else. Instead of focusing on the negatives, which wonít get me anywhere, Iím just going to get right back on the horse & keep moving forward.

So I donít know exactly what I want to do with the rest of my life. So what? A lot of people donít figure that part out until way later in the game, but I know eating the same old comfort food & cocktails while avoiding the gym wonít get me any closer to a happy fulfilling life, but you know what? Neither will being able to fit in a size 6 pair of jeans. Iím in charge of my life. Iím responsible for my own happiness & success & itís time to get back up, brush myself off again, & keep fighting for me. Iím sure it wonít be the last time I have to do it, but one thing I know is that I wonít be the thing standing in my own way. Iíve got to keep trying & thatís exactly what Iím going to do.

Happy New Year, everyone. Remember that you are not your weight. You are that light inside of you that makes you smile & even though sometimes you have to fight to keep it glowing, itís always worth the battle because you are beautiful & worth taking care of.

    It is so good to see you back as determined as ever! I missed you girl. You are so right that the first step to getting healthy is loving and accepting yourself.
