A new friend

Wednesday, April 30, 2008

I have always considered myself a pretty good friend to others. I'm sure I have some faults when it comes to friendships but overall I do a pretty good job. I am thinking more and more recently that I need to be that good friend to myself.

Things I'd never do to a friend:
Yell at her for eating something ¡§bad¡¨
"Allow¨ self-destructive behaviors without trying to help
Intentionally hurt
Tell her she's fat and ugly
Make her feel guilty for having a few bad days

So, if I wouldn"t do those things to a friend, I shouldn't be doing them to myself. I am becoming more positive with myself and showing kindness. Instead of focusing on what I haven"t done or how much I have to lose. I keep reminding myself that I have lost 35 pounds and 24 inches. It"s so much nicer to go through my day treating myself like I"d treat others.

    35 pounds and 24 inches is, absolutely, an incredible accomplishment. You should be very proud of yourself.

    It doesn't happen overnight, though I wish I could snap my fingers and take back all the trips to the drivethrough. Slowly, but surely, with the right attitude, we can loose the weight that is holding us down.
