This fantastic post from Katie for Life is worth the quick read… it’s about body image and how life is just too short to spend hating your body.
I know I can certainly relate. Especially now at one of my all time highest weights. Heck, I hated my body when I was a thin little thing. I recall my Mom thinking I was bulimic because I ate to no end & manged to keep a great figure. I look back at that body now & think how I’d kill for it….but you know what…whatever demons in my head would still have me hating it.
I’m currently working on those demons. I’m seeing a wellness coach to get my act together. I can’t do this alone anymore. I’m not getting anywhere. He asked me great question… ”If I put a tape recorder up to your head – what would I hear?” Ya know what I told him…a LOT of negative self talk. It’s really true.
I’m not dumb…I know how to eat & what to eat…I just don’t DO IT! There’s those voices in my head that keep fighting with me. That’s what we’re working on. It’s going to be a long process because lets face it – it took almost 37 years for those voices to grow – it’s not going to be an overnight process to send them packing.
Does anyone else have those voices in their heads? I know I can’t be the only one… What are some of the things you’ve done to show them whose boss?
