Good Morning Friends,
Last night when Hubby got home we were talking and he was telling me how the guys at the F.D. saw the pictures of us from the fair the other day and said how good and skinny I looked.
I told him, Its weird cause no matter how skinny I actually am I always think I look fat in pictures. The pants I was wearing were a size 8 and too big cause I wear a 6 now. I am not gonna throw them away for 1 size. To me I thought in the picture that my hips look FAT!!
I realize my hips and thighs look fat to ME because of how BIG I actually was before. I guess I will never have that beach body again and I am OK with that. I have to keep reminding myself that I went from a size 20 to a now 6. That is a major feat in itself.
My point is, that no matter how well we do we will always look at ourselves and feel that
it's NEVER ENOUGH!!
So friends, we MUST make peace with ourselves. Set your goal weight and after we have reached our goal that we set for ourselves - like me at my age and many of you, accept the fact that we are not perfect and never will be. \
Another VERY important point is to find a way while you are losing weight that you can eat that way FOREVER. If its just a temporary diet - it won't work in the long run and you will gain it back.
I am SO happy with the way I eat now. We watch commercials for pizza for instance, and I say to hubby, I can't believe how much I LOVED that before, I would eat 4 pieces easy....Now I found a way to get the cheese and pepperoni that I love making crusts myself the healthy way.
