I want to get to the point where I am enough!!!!!

Sunday, March 17, 2013

Lately, I have been realizing that I constantly compare my weight/shape against other women. I always have a weight loss "model" in mind when I think about my weight.

The women are not actually models, just women I work with or see that I measure my weight up against theirs.

The current one is a woman at work who everyone says is so pretty. She used to be 200 or so pounds and now she goes on and on about weighing 130.

However, sometimes she will talk about exercise and she says she refuses to eat healthy or exercise.

I just want to get to the point where just being me is enough to reach for my goals.

I don't want to compare myself all the time to other women. What is even the point? I will never look like them....I should be comfortable in my own skin.

Hopefully I can turn my mind around!

    On one hand I say it is good to have that "model" in mind. It gives you inspiration towards your goals. If you have a picture in your mind, it reminds you of where you want to go and to use the tools needed to get there. Just one negative thought though, if your image is unattainable, you will become very frustrated. Enjoy your journey from when you started and keep your dream of the person you want to become.

    One last note: in one of your previous blogs you came down to the conclusion that your body works very well. I think you said that your kidneys do their job. So remember along your journey you are already healthy you just want to fine tune what you got into that "model" you hope for. Respect yourself for all that your mind and body can do now!

    I know it's hard not to compare yourself to others... I've done it myself. But I've learned over time that what works for you might not work for me...... Just do you!!

    Be Yourself
    Accept Yourself
    Value Yourself
    Bless Yourself
    Express Yourself
    Trust Yourself
    Love Yourself
    Empower Yourself!!

    You have it in you to do it!!

    emoticon You don't need to worry about what those other women say or what they look like! What is important is your success and how you feel about yourself. If you feel your doing your best, then just be you! Others will take notice that your not trying to be someone else. That is the most important! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Khalil Gibbron says that when you are called on to account for yourself you will only be asked if you we're the best you that you old be.
