So, this topic has been smacking me around lately. Especially in my inner thoughts. I think about it constantly. I think about how I feel and how I look way too much lately.
I guess it's because it's January and isn't everyone supposed to start a diet in January.
I started a diet on January 2nd and ate perfectly for one week. At the end of that week, I happily jumped on the scale and saw that I gained a pound.
It made me so mad. It depressed me. I thought about that number on the scale all day. I was so upset.
This made me more upset. Why does a number bother me that much?
I have started really trying to examine my thoughts about my weight and being fat. This morning, I ate breakfast and I felt full after I ate.
It immediately started the negative thoughts. Why did I eat so much? Why don't I have enough will power to stop?
But...why? I didn't overeat. I was just full.
Why did this start those negative feelings?
And, here's the biggie for me. What am I passing on to my daughter? What if I pass on this evil-ness to her?
I read this article today. fat talk
I'm not the only one out there dealing with this.
I love the Tri Delts in this article that stop the fat talk for one week. It really raises awareness about this phenomenon in women.
I feel like this is the beginning of a journey to start liking me.
