Good day.
Tons of energy from all my fruits I ate :). I cleaned the bottom shelf of my big deep freeze.
WoooHooo. So Funnn....And I rewarded myself with a strawberry smoothie. YUMO
We are going to visit my soon2be sister-in-law tomorrow(fri). I really love her. She is an awesome person and I enjoy spending time with her. Her personality is a bit silly like my own. It makes me feel like I'm 32 again and not a dinosaur who can clap randomly
I can't believe I'm going to be 33 in September. Where has the time gone?
One day at a time I'm getting there. I'm so much stronger and more amazing than I give myself credit for. Why are we our own worst critics?
Most the time instead of being proud of myself for losing the weight I wanted to I beat myself up because of some other thing.
It's crazy or is everyone like this??

    So many of us are incredibly self-critical, and it just does us absolutely no good - and yet we still continue on that path day after day........I think this is actually harder to break than substance-related habits (including food).......

    Great that you have such an awesome relationship with your future SIL - so many people despise their in-laws (present or future) have truly been blessed!

    Just know that you're not alone with your feelings and struggles - the Spark family cares!

    The ability to critique oneself is a great tool, unfortunately the way it's used is often out of balance. We're so much quicker to look at the negative and not the positive, to acknowledge and hold onto the negative vs the positive. It's a lot more common that it needs to be.

    I wouldn't want to be 33 again unless I could make some serious changes to my life, making different decisions about a bunch of stuff. Since time travel is the stuff of science fiction, I'll be happy being in my mid-60's and not looking back with regrets.

    As for the self-criticism? Most of us are our own worst critics. We have to be aware of when we're saying those awful things to ourselves and stopping and finding something kind to say to ourselves. Takes time and consistent work, but I'm seeing some success in that area in my own life, so I know it can be done.

    The only people that aren't that way are such ego-maniacs the rest of us can't stand them. emoticon

    I had a therapist say to me once, "would you use those harsh words on your friends"? I said, "of course not!" And he said, "then why do it to yourself"? I started crying and learned a very valuable lesson. You are right - we are too hard on ourselves. emoticon Have a GREAT weekend with your family and I hope you continue to feel well.

    Love, Chelsea emoticon

    I think we all tend to look at our faults and not our good points. We have to learn how to be our own cheerleaders. Have fun with your soon to be sister in law.

    It's hard to give up beating yourself silly with a baseball bat, but soon, you won't miss it.
