My 2020 Plan

Wednesday, January 01, 2020

I am at 198.6 pounds, size 16. I don't feel well at this weight. I don't like current pictures of myself. But I do not have to accept this. I can change this. I will change this. During my journey, I will continue to accept myself and strive to do better. Because even though I don't like photos of myself, I like myself!

    I like the theme and focus of your 2020 plan blog. The distinction you make between not liking your photos of yourself but liking yourself is powerful. It is that kind of mindset that will move you along a path that you will feel good about.
    Way to go......

    As far as writing, I joined a memoir writing group a couple of years ago. The group has morphed into short short story writing (for some of us). I like writing ..... and am trying to get better. Maybe some day... a longer undertaking, such as longer short stories or ....ahem.... even a book.
    Welcome to the Clover leaf team BTW.

    I hear you. It is hard to accept our body sometimes. Try to remember your body did not gain the weight and get out of shape on it's own. You didn't make the healthy choices and your body has paid the price. I say this not to be mean or cruel. It is the truth. I know because I did it to my body too. But I kept doing it for years and years until my body gave up. Now I am in my 70's with a tired and broke body. I am trying to show it all the love and care it deserved all those years. It has served me much better than I served it. Don't get angry at your body, get angry at how you have treated it. Make the choice to start give it the care and love it all the love it deserves. It has carried you for a long time. It is you turn now. Join me in being thankful that our body took care of us all those years and dedicate yourself to returning the love and care to your body. You know it is going to be hard, it is a life long job. We may mess up but the alternative is not an option I care to consider. We can do this.
