My Journey to Accepting Me

Wednesday, November 23, 2011

This weekend my plans are to start my journey to accepting me for who I am, where I am. When I think about holiday gatherings, food, and photo-ops, I start to get a little anxious. I usually pile my plate high with food, am the life of the party, but shy away from taking pics. This holiday will be different. We are kicking Thanksgiving off with a 70's-themed party at my cousin's house. Although, I could not find a costume to fit me, I am going to go party and enjoy myself. I will not over-indulge in the foods, but I will allow myself to be photographed. I will not talk negatively to myself or dwell on things that make me sad. I realize that things will happen and people will hurt you, but life goes on. You do not have to stay in that place of hurt. Plus, I feel as if I am coming into my own. 2011 has been a year of positive changes in my life. I feel growth each and every day. I think 2012 will be another year of more of the same. I pledge to take my life back from obesity and self-loathing. I will be more of a role model for my young daughter. I will do the things that truly make me happy.

    Yes! It's all about ENJOYING the holiday, your family and the food (just don't overdo it).
