I saw these on fb over the weekend and wanted to share them, because they impacted me deeply:
I actually say most of these things to myself. How did women come to hate themselves so much? Only one problem...I truly believe all the things I tell myself, so I have no clue how to tell myself otherwise. :(
And this one impacted me even more. Many of these conditions are going on all around me, and they are all going on with those of us who need to lose weight. This...THIS is why I'm doing this. I want to live longer and better, and I want to be there when my kids have kids. I want to be the grandmother my kids should've had but didn't. I want to be able to ride my bike across the country, travel EVERYWHERE, outlast my students on school days, and just do simple things that healthy people take for granted! Stairs, shoe-tying, running to catch a bus, those are all things I want to still be able to do in another 20 years. 30 years.
That's why I'm doing this.
