Weight loss, What is important is being kind to yourself

Weight loss, What is important is being kind to yourself
Don’t get me wrong I am VERY happy in the photo on the left! It was my first big trip (I went to Belgium and France). I was so excited to finally be going somewhere that wasn’t my own country. I do remember not feeling happy with the way the pictures turned out though because I didn’t like what I was looking at (myself)

I usually love pictures (especially at a new place I’ve never been) but the summer of 2019 was full of shame and low self esteem because it was the heaviest I have ever been

Fast forward to January 2020 when I decided my New Years resolution was going to be starting weight watchers! LOOK AT ME NOW! I never thought I was going to be able to stick with something because I usually don’t

Did I have cheat days / weeks? Absolutely. Did I fall off track sometimes? Yes. The difference was I talked more positively to myself than I was use to. I reminded myself that I am HUMAN! I am going to want chocolate, deep friend food, candy and other foods that aren’t bad for me

I didn’t start this journey to completely cut out the foods that I love. I started it because I was at a low point in my life and realized I needed to make some major changes in my eating. I love how this program allows you to do that. If I want ice cream I can have the damn ice cream! And want to know a secret? There are days I don’t even track because I decide that I want to indulge a little

What is important is being kind to yourself and forgiving yourself for getting off track. Every day is a new day and one or two days not tracking / eating well isn’t going to bring you back to where you started
