Mirror, Mirror

On The Wall . . .

What Do You to Do Look Good and Feel Great?

The best advice I have been given is to go with how I feel and not by the numbers on the scale! I know those numbers do not define me as a person and express who I truly am. I do! I am the one with the power.

Who Is Looking Pretty Fine

Yes, I want to lose and maintain my weight, but I really want to feel good and have great energy more! I love what my body can do for me in living my life. I want to better my quality of life by feeling healthy, looking good and feeling great! I enjoy being an active person.

I use to think mirrors were from the fun house of horrors! I enjoy checking myself out in the mirror now. Sometimes I even tell myself I am looking pretty fine and have it going on! I am seeing the progress I have been making by checking myself out in the mirror too. That feels pretty rewarding!

I try really hard to not trash talk myself and my body! There really is no point and it is not going to change anything anyway. I can build myself up or break myself down. I prefer to build myself up and take it one day at a time!

    Working out is so rewarding! It is not just to improve physical health but also mental health.

    Good job!!!

    Definitely exercising, which is so much easier to say than to actually do. For the last few years I’ve started to feel worse and worse about the way I look, middle age and all that. But maybe 2 summers ago I was pretty good about working out, and I realized how magical that was to my self esteem. It actually made me stop worrying about my age as well. I need to get back on track!

    Oh, oh, I am feeling guilty as I just walked past a weight tucked into a corner. Time to go lift it. I don’t like exercising, which is an obstacle to overcome. Any suggestions?

    I love that you point out there is a choice to be made – you can put yourself down or build yourself up. It’s easy to get into that rut of putting yourself down (I know I’ve done it, still do some), but that gets so tiresome. There has to come a point when you quit being afraid of the mirror. I know I’m still making excuses; I know I’m struggling with just taking that final leap of finally doing what I need to for better mental and physical health but I also know I’m there on the edge – I can feel my toes dangling. I just need to quit being afraid – mostly of failing. I guess as much as I don’t like looking the way I do right now (mostly with weight), I’m more afraid of trying and not getting anywhere or even if I do lose the weight that I’ll still not feel good about things, that I’ll still be unfulfilled. I’m trying to hard right now to remind myself that that can’t happen. The only way it will is if I don’t try. Dang – not sure I’ve ever really said any of that to myself or to someone else before. It’s hard to admit that, but thank you for having this outlet to let me become more honest with myself. Love this post!

      Jennifer –

      You are making strides – the first is admitting it to yourself – HUGE step – continue going and do it for yourself:) I am learning to lean more into discomfort and it actually feels pretty good (break out in a sweat at times – ha!). It probably feels really good to you to write this comment and just put it out there!

    Since I hate exercising so badly, I have to trick myself into doing it. Reading my kindle while riding the stationary bike for an hour or so helps me get some exercise in each day…and lots of books read.
