The things you learn from photographs

Sunday, April 14, 2013

This picture of me from yesterday's event was posted online today... Looking at this picture, two things seem obvious to me. One: I clearly love reenacting. I had no idea this photo was being taken, so that's just apparently how I look at reenactments. It's like playing dress up and getting to teach people about history all day. The other thing I noticed was that I still have some work to do. My constant refrain of "I don't need to lose weight" is really just an excuse because I don't really feel like I can do it. I am currently at the weight that I have been at for most of my life. I am scared that I will try to lose more weight and fail, so I keep saying I don't really need to do it, but deep down I know that's not true, so I guess I better get back on track for real this time.

    I feel EXACTLY the same way. Its like I keep sabotaging myself by saying well, I dont really *need* to lose weight. We shouldn't settle for anything less than what we want ourselves to be. emoticon

    You really do look so happy in this picture!
I think a lot of people on sparkpeople are also trying to find the balance between self acceptance, losing weight and goal weight. You have the tools and knowledge to lose weight. You know everything that you're supposed to be doing. It may be happening slowly because you also have a life to live, but that's okay. As long as you're exercising and eating mindfully to be healthy and not just to lose weight, I think everything will fall into place.
