Being the best version of yourself at any given moment is the only thing you can reach and that is a lot! People will like you when you like who you are. Very simple and oh so true. I am keeping my fingers crossed for you!
My youngest daughter took of 50 pounds in 1 year. She came back from the US like a huge person but now she is shining like never before. And she is so proud of herself and satisfied with the fact that she did accomplish this. She is 20 today. Now she likes herself. She is not skinny but a nice slim figure. You can be too!
Thank you Marnik!!! I really like the idea of being the best version of yourself possible at any given moment. I think there is so much wisdom in your post.
I feel as if I don't reasonate with being overweight anymore and Im slowly letting go and taking on new challenge instead.
I am so pleased ot hear your daughter is happy with her body and achieved her goals. She must be so pleased being able to show off her slim figure in all the wonderful fashions out at the moment.
I love fashion, its wonderful. I think its so important to like yourself and Im pleased she recognise what a huge achievement she has made. And also has a wonderful and proud parent to remind her should she ever forget.
I think you are right about liking myself. Its been a long journey but I am finally getting there!! My latest question to myself has been, "Whats best for my body?" rather than "How can I lose the most weight", its funny but whenever I relax and accept myself I have noticed time and time again people flock to me and I fit in, its when I lose touch with the love and acceptance things get skewy. I think I just need to keep on working through the false beliefs and taking responsibility, it will be worth it in the end. I feel free-er already.
Thank you for all your support and wisdom,
