What will be different

Monday, January 28, 2013

When I lose my excess pounds I will feel better about myself. I want to feel good about who I am - not so self conscious. I love fashion, dressing up wearing heels etc. But at my current weight I cannot do this.
I am tired of people saying - 'she has such a pretty face". I am tired of my boss blabbing about her weight loss everyday she comments on what size she is wearing and how wonderful she looks!!! i don't think I am jealous - more like discouraged.
I am frustrated with my body and all the health issues going on - will they change if I am thinner - no way of knowing. But I need to try.

    I feel the same way as you! My mom has been very successfully losing weight, and that's ALL she talks about. I am SO happy for her............yet discouraged for me, and it is hard to hear about it all the time! :-/ We can do this together - for health AND for dressing up pretty!! :-)

    Congratulations on your healthy lifestyle journey. The one thing I have enjoyed since my weight loss is going to the mall and having more options, besides the plus size stores.

Since you are beginning your journey, and realize how much time, planning and energy goes into maintaining the healthy lifestyle you should be happy for your boss.

It won't be long, before you too will be bragging out how much weight and how many dress sizes you have loss.

    Those were my thoughts as well and the answer is hell ya ! I feel better about myself. I feel much lighter and my coats and even boots are more roomy and comfy. My face looks prettier. I am having fun dressing up etc. etc. etc.
You deserve that and it will come. The hardest days are when life gets in the way and you want to medicate with food. I am having one today. I am off the chart with stress and not getting on with the day. I refuse to cheat, though. I want this that bad....
Please take care and realise they are not all hard days ,but when you are ready to be thin you will be thin !!!! Blessings emoticon emoticon
