i wish i could learn to accept myself the way i am. although i am working hard to better myself acceptance is an uphill battle. i don't understand why i can't understand and process the fact that it took a while to get out of shape so it will take almost as long to get back in shape. every time i see the roll around my middle i just want to cry. then i start to feel i will never be successful in my journey. self confidence is a precious thing. i wish i had more.

    Self-confidence can be oh so elusive! I am struggling with that myself. One thing that helps me is writing down motivational sayings in a notebook. I went through the notebook the past couple days and I journaled on them. I had forgotten how much it does help and will try not wait so long to do it anymore.

    Look beyond that roll,and try to see what about yourself you ARE happy with! Though it took 7 years to reach my goal, I still have a roll around my middle! No one is 'perfect' but YOU are trying now, and that is the most important part! Congratulate yourself for the healthy choices you make each day. Try to just focus on the day you have right now. Self confidence comes when you decide you are trying your best to be who you are now and who you are working towards. I wish you the best as you go through your journey, I found having fun and enjoying the moment helps a lot on the journey!
