A couple of my sparkfriends have recently posted blogs where they talk about how you see yourself vs how others see you. They give some really good advice about not being so hard on yourself. Other people are not nit picking all your faults if they even see them at all. Your friends and family see your beautiful smile. All you see is the roll around your middle.
It reminded me of this very cool video that Dove did where they took some women and had them describe themselves to a forensic artist (they didn't know exactly what was going on) and then had a complete stranger describe them to the artist. The artist never saw any of them directly - only drawing from descriptions. The difference in the pictures was amazing. Here is the video: www.youtube.com/watch?v=
Be proud of all the hard work you are doing. Everything is making a difference every day. No one is ever 100% happy with how they look, just remember to be kind to yourself.
