Day 17 and 18 - I love feeling strong

Thursday, July 25, 2013

I've never been "thin", perhaps I would love the way it feels. I have been strong - and I KNOW I love how that feels.

Right now I am working on feeling strong again, perhaps because it feels more important and more manageable than worrying about thin.

I like knowing I can trust my body to carry me around (relatively pain free) up hills or through the city. I want to trust my own strength again.

I am getting there!

    I love that concept!! I have been "thin" in the past and my head was fat - my body image was so warped that I thought I was fat and hated my body. I also lost a lot of weight as an adult and was kind of "thin" for me, but I'm built like a brick sh*thouse, so I will never be "skinny." I have no idea what that feels like. Feeling "thin" which is kind of weird head-trip anyway. I had a hard time getting used to my body which suddenly was receiving all this attention and I wasn't mentally prepared to handle it in my 20's, so I slowly gained all the weight I lost back.

What's different this time is it's not about how I look or what other people think about how I look. It's about being strong: mentally, emotionally and physically. It's about being healthy and not having aches and pains and most importantly, it's about loving myself and letting go of self-destructive eating behaviors which have plagued me my entire life.

We **are** getting there! It's going to feel awesome!

    I think feeling strong is way more important than feeling thin. And feeling strong will lead to thin! Not to discount another member's comments; but, I think TCANNO misunderstood what you meant. I don't know if it is a woman thing; but, I am pretty sure I get it. For me, exercise make me feel strong and gives me confidence in everything I do not just in getting healthy and losing weight. I feel empowered in life! That feeling can carry me through the days I am feeling "fat" or when the scale is unkind. It gives me the feeling I am worthy and I can for this!

Keep up the great work! Strong will lead to thin!

    I am sorry to say this but if you are over weight it doesn't matter how you body feels. I have been there and done that so as not to diet or exercise.

Once that was out of my mind I now find that I can do what I did when I was 20 years younger, I am glad I did as I would be missing so much.

Please have a rethink.

Good luck with whatever you decide
