Always wanting the greener grass

Saturday, February 23, 2013

Do you ever feel that way??? Always wanting that damn grass on the other side? Me???? Like everyday of my life!!! "I want botox" emoticon "I want straight hair" "I want a round ass" I want a flat stomach". I want I want I want. Never, "hey I look OK for being in my mid 30s". Always... I want what I do not have.

Yeah I have some crows feet. Oh Botox ....sigh and Viking curls

My Hubs told me before I left for the gym that I looked good, and that I looked fit!!!!! Then at the gym I Looked. I mean beyond my gut and noticed I do LOOK kinda fit!
And then chatting up with a gal in the sauna about running and how she feels so uncomfortable running next to women like me! Wait...ME???? HA! I usually start into OMG look at my gut, Im huge, I only run at 6.2 etc. etc. etc. Instead I told her I weighed 217 once and I know how uneasy one can feel! But I also told her hang in there! It gets easier and you will lose weight!

I had a random shot taken of me...oh babies! And to my surprise loved my new rounder butt and my gut, although does stick out...doesn't look 8 months prego like I always think

Enjoy your current grass. It might be greener on the other side and someday you WILL get there to strut your new bad ass self.

    You look svelt! You know I'm a grass greener on the other side kinda gal. But I'm trying to change that about myself. An older Spark friend said I shouldn't focus on the negatives. I should appreciate my youth. One day ten years from now I may have reached my weight loss goals but I won't have the youth that I have today. So, until I lose this weight I will relish in my young and chubby face!ha

    I'm so glad your girl snapped that pic of you! Stunning! You look gorgeous. Your body looks hot! Stare at that pic instead of the tummy ones you don't like. You are so much prettier than you know.

    You do look GREAT!!!!!!

I have been wathcing alot of Robin Woodall's videos on You Tube about dieting and self image and it was been really helping, might want to check it out.

Hope this does not offend you but have you ever thought about looking into cool sculpting for the tummy? You may just have exercise resistant tissue on the tummy that no matter what you do will not go away. I have seen in your blogs that the tummy is the one spot on you that causes you to not love your body. I am seriously thinking about it for my thighs cause for me, that is the one body part that I hate. I am trying to learn to love my body but if there is something that I can do to help with my self esteem, no harm in looking into it (check out groupon).

It would be great if all women learned to love their bodies but the society that we live in makes it very difficult.

Good luck.

    Viking curls?

I hear you on the hair--mine is crazy-curly too and I really wish it would just BEHAVE.
