"Today, not tomorrow,not the next day, but today, I start on the road to a better me today". I have heard this run through my brain more than I can count. I have made vows I have made promises and yet here I am in the same place I was before sad, upset and depressed about my current state of body. Like everyone else I have looked for get skinny quick schemes. I have done weight watchers, 17 day diet,flat belly diet, Atkins diet,slimming-world. (look at me just your average 22 year old diet whore.) 17 day: great results unrealistic changes for lifetime happiness. flat belly: wonderful for a rabbit like diet! Atkins: great if you love cheese and constipation. slimming-world: actually pretty amazing but easier to do in England than in the US OF A. I am tired of dieting I am tired of making promises I don't keep but mostly I am tired of being unhappy. So starting today and every other day I will make a declaration over my life through here, with a few blurbs.
I will look in the mirror look straight into my eyes and tell myself I am beautiful. I will no longer be on a diet rather I will change the way I feel about food. This is my declaration.
(I promise you that looking at your eyes, not your belly, not your chest, not your lips, arms, nose, but look into your own eyes as you would a friend and telling yourself that you are beautiful is a much harder feat than we all may think.)
