I caught myself in the mirror today and I had a moment where I was surprised by my own reflection. This has happened to me before, but this time it was in a good way. I have really transformed my body over these past 341 days! I am really proud of myself. Just writing down these words is an act of self-caring and is a sign of real growth for me.
Every morning I look forward to a little inspiration on the Facebook group, Weight Watchers, Yes You Can. Each day, Margaret posts something that makes me think. And this morning’s message really hit home. Thank you, Margaret, for letting me share this here:
Why is it so easy to be self-critical, while at the same time, it can be hard to celebrate my own accomplishments? This is something I’m working on because it feels better to be positive. Take today, for example, I made some very smart food choices and ended it feeling very satisfied. I used zero point foods as a base for my meals and then built in other foods I really enjoy around them. I had pistachios, cheese, a terrific cheeseburger, a hash brown and even dessert (Enlighted Frozen Hot Cocoa Bar 3sp). I can do all of this and lose weight and that’s amazing to me. My whole relationship with food is changing.
DAY 9: Name two foods you will eat today that are worthy of you.
