Well, this morning I was going to share about my experience donating blood last night but instead I'm shifting gears!
I know we all read alot of the same blogs & sometimes it seems we fuel off one another with topics. This will be another one of those times.
Have you read Goodbye to the Obsession at Oh She Glows? Watch the video too. It'll make you stop & think.
Then go check out Operation Beautiful at Healthy Tipping Point. And while you are there look at the pics at the end of this post from reader's of Caitlin's blog that have already joined in. The two that hit me the most were the ones on the Slimfast & the one on the scale. They brought tears to my eyes.
It really struck me this morning because last night as I changed into my jammies & headed in the bathroom, I stood in the mirror looking at myself. Awful words came out of my mouth. I said "looking good fat ass." I'm not joking & as I sat down to go to the bathroom, I apologized to myself.
Why would I say such a thing knowing full well that I've been doing great, making progress, weight is dropping little by little. I'm ONLY 20 pounds heavier than I want to be. I've still MAINTAINED a loss of 100 pounds. So why oh why would I even beat myself up?!? It was totally stupid & I kid you not when I said I made myself apologize.
Do you say negative things about yourself, discount compliments given by others, think or do things that are not respectful to your body, mind or soul? Do you want to stop?
Do you know HOW to stop? What step will you make today to stop the insanity?
I think I did pretty well last night with the apology. I've actually been so pumped about seeing changes with my body again that I've not said things like that in a while. I will not let that continue!
Will you do it too? Be an empowered, BEAUTIFUL woman who loves herself, taking care of the only body & life that you have?
I DARE YOU!
