Making Progress is not just weight loss!!

Sunday, February 17, 2013

I've had an EPIPHANY!! Up until today every time I saw the phrase "I'm Making Progress" on the huddle board I always thought about movement on the scale... But today as I huddled I thought about the progress I've made in my food choices, my trying to get more activity into my days, and Most important my Loving myself!!! Loving myself regardless of what the number on the scale says, or what my clothes size is!! I'm finding the more I love myself the more confident I become!! I've been looking in the mirror lately and liking what I see not because I've lost an extraordinary amount of weight, but because I believe the woman looking back at me is Beautiful!!! Inside and out! Not only that she's smart, witty, and accomplished!!! Yes I am indeed making progress!! Progress at Loving and appreciating ME!!

    Its all about self esteem. If you feel crappy about yourself you put crap in your mouth because you just don't care. When you love yourself you choose foods that nourish you. Loving yourself is the secret to winning. Well said.

    Amen! It's amazing how much better we feel about ourselves when we are actively focused on our health! It's like something switches in the brain. If I think back to times where I've felt low and miserable and had negative self esteem - those have been times when I've been sedentary and not paying attention to food intake. I just have to keep reminding myself of this and not get discouraged by the scale. Thank you for this!
