I have to feel the part!
Monday, January 16, 2012
One of the many lessons I have learned over the many many years of struggling with my weight is that I need to make an effort to make myself feel good about myself. The past several weeks that I have been binging I have not put in any effort into my appearance. I have been wearing my glasses, no makeup, sweats and t-shirts. I have been really super hard on myself because I am up 15+ lbs from my lowest and I feel SO fat! I look at my profile picture and SO want to be back there. It is amazing what a difference 15lbs makes! So I have been feeling fat and ugly and I have been eating as such.
So, today I am changing my mindset. I pulled down some of my old clothes that had gotten too big on me... they are nice, pretty clothes that fit me now. Fashionable sweaters and blouses and nice fitting jeans. The goal is to wear these clothes the rest of January and all of February and then get rid of them for good! Then be back in my size 8's where I want to maintain.
I am getting a simple manicure and (painful) eyebrow wax done today. I had one last pair of contacts left and I ordered some more. These are just little things that make me feel good about myself and motivate me to eat right and exercise. Going to hit the track first this morning--- shooting for 5 miles in 1 min run/ 1 min walk intervals.
Have a great week!
