BLC 21 Back to the Future

Sunday, January 27, 2013

For the Week 2 weekend challenge, the theme is Back to the Future, and one of the aspects of the challenge is to write about two things: How will my life change when I meet my weight loss/fitness goals, and to forgive myself for something in the past.

I forgive myself for all of my bad choices regarding food and lack of exercise. I forgive myself for my previous weight loss failures. I forgive myself for beating myself up about it and shaming myself. I forgive myself for comparing myself to others and making myself feel bad about not measuring up. I am releasing all of these negatives and moving forward with a renewed commitment to improving my health - mind, body, and spirit.

How will my life be different when I meet my goals? My goals are elusive since I have never been thin. I don't have a clothing size in mind, or a number on the scale. I don't know what it will feel like because I have never been there. I am hoping I will feel lighter and more free, doing things will be easier, I will have more energy and won't be exhausted all the time. I'm hoping it will improve my confidence and self-esteem. It's definitely something I'm looking forward to.

    It's always important to acknowledge what you've done in the past and,most importantly, forgive yourself for those things you are not proud of. You can change and by giving it your best every single day you will feel better both mentally and physically.

    I don't have particular goals either---just one day at a time of healthy choices and actions.

    You are in my prayers. You can do this.
