Kind Enough to give Me a Path

Had a checkup this morning and I have gained weight, people! I knew this deep down, of course, but dont we all try to trick ourselves into thinking it isn’t true? I’ve gained so much that they’re checking my thyroid. The only thing that got me through the panic I felt when I saw the number on the scale was remembering that I am working on it. I’m not just sitting around and watching it happen anymore. My weight has fluctuated my entire adult life, and I think when I picture myself in my mind, I still picture that cute 20 year old. Does anyone else do this? It means that when I’m faced with the numbers, the facts, the measurements, I feel a little shock. Even though I shouldn’t. Body image is a bitch. I just want to look the way I feel. And @norrishlp has been kind enough to give me a path, and I’m gonna follow it and see where this goes.

1 workout down this week. All while the munchkin napped. And Rocky watched, without judging me.

  1. I know exactly how you feel! I always think I’m about 3 sizes smaller than I am. Then, I see a picture of me and think…wait! Is that me?! haha! I’ve learned to embrace it though. As you said, you FEEL good and that’s what matters most 🙂

  2. What workouts do you use? I started doing one at home recently that my son loves to “participate” in as well LOL. I think one of the hardest parts of life (and best parts too!) is realizing it’s always in flux, so we’re have to roll with it and know that everything changes, including our bodies. At the end of the day, if you’re taking control of your health and starting to do things that make you and your body feel GOOD, then you’re on the right path! Xx
