Weight on Wednesdays post… WHO KNOWS?

6 Jul

So usually on Wed I do weigh ins, meet with my weight loss group, and either praise or gripe the work I’ve done or haven’t done. Well Ill tell ya, this week I was about the same size as I usually am. But I wasn’t even upset.

You know why?

Because I figured us women our wayyyyyyyyyy to hard on ourselves.
If we need to lose weight for health reasons that’s different, but why not just love where you are? How your body is? Each day I’m striving to do that, and not beat myself up about it. I’ve been working hard, attempting to eat good, taking care of myself, and taking the steps I need to take to be fit, so if I didn’t lose weight this week, or the next… SO WHAT?

Ultimately, I would like to be 145. I’m not even going to lie. But what I am going to do, is attempt to get there the slow and healthy way. I’m not going to push myself to the point where I hate attempts to be healthy, but I am going to do what I gotta do, to make progress and be willing to change it up if I need to.

But what I WON’T DO, is beat myself up any longer about being the size I am.
We are so hard on ourselves.
We disappoint ourselves.
We pinch and probe on our bodies to show what we could lose, or what we need to lose. But truth be told, we simply need to lose one thing:


Our attitudes towards this whole thing are crazy! Why don’t we simply strive to be healthy and fit everyday, to lose weight, but not let that be our main goal. Let’s just strive to be the best self we can be and if we lose a lil weight along the way, so be it.

So today I will attempt to:

1. Learn how to work this body of mine.
2. Love this body of mine more.
3. Figure out what looks good on this body!
4. Take care of me.
5. Lose weight but not be so aggressive about it.
6. Focus on my health.
7. Stop picking out what I don’t like, and look at what I love
       (Afterall, God created me this way for a reason) 

This is what is matters. This is what is most important.

To ultimately be the best you can be, even if that includes a few lil extra pounds 🙂

Until Next Time, Mrs. SPJ 🙂
