If you read me regularly you will know this, if you don't, here goes. I have terribly low self esteem. I don't dislike my life, I'm very happy and confident......except when it comes to my body. I truly hate my body.
I've worked hard this last year to make some REAL changes. I'm always on a diet, but now I'm changing my lifestyle totally. I eat at different times, I still have treats and off days, but mostly I focus on giving my body the food and exercise it needs.
Even with all the changes, I struggle to see any difference. Then, this morning I looked back at my memories on Facebook. It showed me a picture from a year ago, getting dressed for a friends wedding. I had bought myself a gorgeous Lindy Bop dress, and I felt fantastic. I even allowed some rare full length pictures. That is where I finally saw a difference!
This is exactly a year ago, compared to a few weeks ago:
I keep looking at it, almost trying to convince myself that I'm seeing wrong, that there is no difference! (Only people who really struggle with their weight will understand that negativity).
I will keep going, because I'm starting to look forward to what next year might bring.
