This is why I'm doing it.

Thursday, April 18, 2013

So the other day a girlfriend suggested a beach trip a few weekends from now, and I immediately thought of excuses not to go.

That's not me!! I love the water, I love beach trips, I love being with friends. The fact that I am so uncomfortable with my body and the idea of being in a swimsuit in front of people makes me not want to do any of this shows that enough's enough. This whole journey was to gain confidence for the things I love to do. If someone called me up and said, "let's go to the beach right now!" I want to be able to grab a towel and go without thinking "I'll just wait a month when I've lost a few more pounds."

I am doing a detox right now that will hopefully set me in the right direction, but I really need to start caring for my body first so that I can live life the way I want to live it.

Next time I look at that chocolate bar or processed junk, I will keep this in mind. I want to live in a way that let's me love my body, being comfortable, and feel proud of myself. Anything I'm doing that's not moving me in that direction, in a direction of self-love, has got to go.

    Keep in mind that if others don't like the way you look, that is their problem, not yours. Get out there and do the things you enjoy.

    You go girl!! You can do this!! This is also a goal of mine. J will say "Let's sit in the hot tub at the gym" uh. no. haha. But not for long! Get confident and stay healthy! It's the best way to live - without worry of when the next beach trip will be :)
