An Inspiration

Published On July 27, 2015 | By Carrie Buchanan |

I hate to say it but more days than not I hate how I look.  I hate my body.  I hate that it’s so hard to lose a pound and so easy to gain 10.  I hate that 10 years ago I didn’t have to count calories, or watch so carefully how much I ate. But I do now.  And it’s Monday again, and another “one more try” at healthy eating and exercise.

It’s harder.  It’s true.  But you know what?  I want to be ok with it.  I want to be ok with eating a delicious salad for lunch, and being careful with what I eat, and making sure for the most part my diet is healthy, and I also want to be so OK with myself that I go enjoy an ice cream cone with my kids at the water park.

It’s an on-going battle that I’m embarrassed to admit to in all honesty.  I want to stand up and say I’m totally fine with the extra pounds but in all truths it’s a struggle.  But I don’t want my two girls to ever feel they aren’t good enough so I need to continue to work on my self-esteem.  I need to.

This article / blog I found online today is an inspiration for all of us who sometimes don’t feel good enough.  Whether it’s to play in the water in a bathing suit with our kids or whatever else we feel we don’t measure up to.

Read it.  Share it.  Read it often to remind yourself you’re ok as you are.
