Well, I have been at a low point all week. All of my own doing. Not because of stress, being tired or bored. Just very ugly old habits. I started the week reading my friend Mrs. Ballou's No Excuses
blog and she was so right and so inspirational. Mid-week I went on Roni's Weigh to read her What do you love about your body? blog
. I started the Countdown to Turkey Day
group. I still struggled. Finally,this morning I checked in and found Roni's Exposed blog
about the power of looking at our bodies and the positive things about our bodies. I went right upstairs took off my clothes and took the picture. It brought tears to my eyes when I looked at the picture. I anticipated hatred and dread. What I felt when I looked at the picture is, "That is not too bad." "Why do you feel so bad about yourself?" Believe me I could see problem spots but my initial reaction was I really shouldn't be so mean to myself. This was an incredibly hard thing for me to do. But I decided if I am going to face the music and head into the holidays making better choices I need to be better to myself.
So here I am exposing myself to you all.
It was a hard but deeply moving experience. I am moving forward.
