Learning to love myself

Thursday, August 01, 2013

Two days ago I turned 38 (or 29 again is the way I like to look at it). I don't want to be in this body when I turn 40. I didn't want to be in this body when I turned 38, but what's done is done. I can lay blame anywhere I want, but I am the only one to blame for the way that I look and feel. I know I have to learn to love myself, I just don't know how. But every morning I am going to look in the mirror and tell myself that the person staring back at me is worth the time and effort.
I realize that in order to find true happiness I have to start with myself, and I know that I am going to have to make some changes in my life. Some people aren't going to like it, but if they love and support me they will accept it.

    I really can't add a thing to what you've said, except to say BRAVO! You're thinking in the right direction. emoticon

    Happy belated birthday! Yup, I agree with you! It will take time to find all the little things about yourself to love and embrace! I am already in my mid 40s and never wanted to be this big after having my last kid at age 30. As I lose weight, (I walk a lot), I am noticing my "skinny" ankles and feet. My legs are starting to look nice. you go through your journey of weight loss, you will find not only physical likes but hopefully spiritual and mental likes to embrace.
