Self Pep Talk
Saturday, March 09, 2019
I WILL lose this weight, no matter how slow I have to take it. This WILL be a reality- for me to be healthy. I WILL work on continuing to build up my self esteem. I WILL drink all my water. I WILL move more (and hopefully soon try to do some form of exercise) almost every day. I WILL continue to treat my body better, because I deserve it. I owe it to myself to have the best life I can right now. Despite other limitations I have no control over, I will take control of what I can. And my weight and over-all health is one of those things that are determined by ME. I CAN do this, and I WILL do this. There is no reason I shouldn't. The past is just that: the past. No use worrying about the things I haven't done thus far for my health & body. But I DO have control over what I do right now, tomorrow, and every day thereafter. I have the strength to avoid unhealthy foods, to make better choices, avoid associates who will sabotage my efforts, conquer my fears of being skinny, conquer my emotional eating, and to conquer that negative voice in my head. I am strong enough to live my life to the full, to care about myself, and to be the woman that I want to be.
