Loving Me as I am NOW!!!

Monday, January 09, 2012

That's one thing I have to do. I need to enjoy myself the way I am now. I know it will take time to get to my goal weight. I just have to not think so hard on that goal and just enjoy the journey as I reach my goal weight. Just watch as my clothes fall off, watch as I pick healthier foods watch how I rather get up to workout then to sit on my butt with a big bag of family size sour cream and onion chips in my hand.

So loving me as I am NOW!!!

I know I'm still overweight. I know it will take time. I just have to be happy as I am before I get there. Why try to be happy after I've reached my goal. Don't sound right to me.
I need to be happy NOW just as well when I reach my goal weight.
Which I've noticed I have more energy, I tend to jump up and walk more then I used to. I will park farther away from the stores and walk that extra few feet then I used to park closer.
I went to my kids school today my oldest daughter's classroom is on the third floor. I didn't realized that I was walking up the stairs until I got to the top. I was shocked. I normally head to the elevator. Surprise, with the choose I made without even thinking twice.

Oh also I brought the 28 day bootcamp SparkPeople DVD I did 34 minutes of it today. So trying to find a way to add the workouts to my workout plan. Enjoyed the workouts I was sweating while doing the warm ups. :) That's what I like.

But, again loving me as I am NOW!!! :)

    You go Girl!!! Great job on the stairs. Breaking habits and starting new ones is what I need to do too.

    Thanks for the inspiration! emoticon

    You are *so* right! emoticon

    I'm so glad that I took some personal growth workshops years ago, and really GOT that I need to love myself now, and not put it off until I've "earned it" by being more perfect! Each of us is a precious child of God who deserves to be loved, happy and healthy.

    I find when I love myself, I want to treat myself with respect and care, and truly nourish my body and nurture my soul. In my signature block on Spark, I've been quoting the lyrics of one of my favorite songs by Jai Josefs (jaijomusic.com), I Love Myself the Way I Am. I'm currently on the final verse:

    "I love myself the way I am, and still I want to grow
    But change outside can only come when deep inside I know
    I'm beautiful and capable of being the best me I can
    And I love myself just the way I am!"

    Blessed Be, Amanda emoticon
