Realizing my issues.........

Tuesday, February 12, 2013

I've been doing some "self evaluating" lately. Three things need to be addressed so that I may move forward in my journey of becoming more healthy. Funny thing is, I realize my "quirks" and that "it's all in my head" but still it is amazing to me that I fall into these patterns or traps, if you will.
1. I need to start making myself a priority. This has been an issue since childhood. I aim to please, love to help others, buy for others, take care of others. And in the end there is nothing left for me. Or when I try to do something for myself I feel tremendous GUILT!!!!

2. I LOVE FOOD!!!!! I love the color, the texture, the smell, and taste of food. I love trying new recipes. I love preparing food. Food is not fuel to's a pleasure. (very very dangerous pleasure)

3. Paranoia......I am so paranoid, that I think people are talking about me and making fun of me, especially at the gym. "look at that fat girl" or " wow she's wearing that? looks like she painted on those paints" Meanwhile in reality I KNOW most people are just as self absorbed... their not worrying about how I look but how they look.

I realize these 3 issues won't be fixed overnight, but I am aware of them. I face the fact that I AM A WORK IN PROGRESS!

    We're all works in progress, hopefully, we never stop striving for personal growth! Takes a lot to be able to look inward and acknowledge elements that are holding us back from achieving our goals. Good luck! emoticon

    Congratulations on taking steps to a new healthier you ! I am a mom to five (my baby is now 21) and I admit I used to give me all to everyone but me, then one day I woke up and realized I wasn't happy so I started giving to myself as well !! Even moms need some TLC from themselves !! Good luck to you with your fitness goals. You CAN do this !!
