I feel like I’ve been on a “diet” since I was 14 years old. I’m tired……and hungry. I’ve been heavy, thin, in shape, healthy and unhealthy. I feel like these can all mean very different things. I’m 38 years old, I’ve had 3 children and I’m so tired of watching the scale. I always have it in my head that I need to be about 140lbs, which for me is a size 8. I’m comfortable there, I tell myself. But am I? I like the way I look, but the only way to get there is to drastically cut my calories and exersise heavily. Oh and do this FOREVER! The second I stop I go right back to the 150 lbs and size 10 that I have been for most of my life.
I’m starting a new strategy! Maybe my body likes being 150lbs! Maybe I’m supposed to be a size 10. Instead of fighting it, I’m going to EMBRACE it!
I eat very healthy, TRY to exercise regularly and I love food! So here goes! I am going to start the “couch to 10k” app soon and that will make me stronger and healthier. Just deciding to stop fighting my body has already made me like it more!
Wish me luck, or better, join me in embracing your own body!
