The First Step Towards Getting Somewhere is to Decide That You Are Not Going to Stay Where You Are.
I am so grateful to have found Spark People..
& I hope for more and more 'Self Discovery'..
I'M SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO MUCH HAPPIER NOW
Since returning to Spark People I'm reminded about how much more confidence and power I seem to have over my life since I put focus into myself & how much 'over eating and self worth are related'.
BELOW IS THE PICTURE OF ME THAT INSPIRED ME TO JOIN SPARK PEOPLE
TWO AND A HALF YEARS AGO AT 180lbs!
Recently I've been watching the body language of over-weight people. I see beautiful eyes, hair, and smiles.. which is the most apparent physical beauty that can't be hidden. I say hidden because I have come to believe as I reminisce about my own journey that I was hiding behind my weight. I know now that I had been feeling very unworthy and unfulfilled in my life.
EATING WAS A WAY TO KEEP FROM BEING HURT AND WAS A WAY TO DISTANCE MYSELF FROM RESOLVING OR WORKING TOWARD SEEKING HELP AND FINDING ANSWERS.
AN IMPORTANT LAYER TO SELF WORTH
AND HAVING SELF-CONTROL I BELIEVE IS TO SEEK COUNSELING AND TO ADDRESS ISSUES SUCH AS CO-DEPENDENCY, ABUSE (OR OTHER DEEPER MORE INTRINSIC PROBLEMS).
Joining Spark People inspired me to go back to school and seek counseling
What has joining Spark People done to improve your Self Worth?
