Today I did something i have not done in YEARS---got my hair done! Got a perm! and it looks Great! and it cost money, and I spent that money on ME! Starting to care how i look again! Why go the rest of my life fat and unattractive? its not necessary. I am 61, not interested in dating but i just feel so much better about myself when i look nice. And then i bought earring to flatter my new hair do and two nice linen shirts! i had really given up on me! Was waiting to die, staying in the house, i had the never/forever blues! I will never look good again, i will never be active again, never be happy again, i i will be fat forever! Its all over! My life is over! WELL guess what---it isn't! Looking nicer really helps motivation by lifting the self-esteem. Self esteem is the whole thing, isn't it? It is for me! Such a motivator! I want to exercise today and tomorrow to look even better in that mirror!
And it is well worth the money!
Instead of waiting for weight loss to get rewards, i think i need to start motivating myself with things like this first. Where is my money going? It needs to go where i really need it to go. Into my self esteem!
Slow and steady wins the race
