It’s going to be very busy. I have a ton of homework, and I’m much more involved in my job this year, but I think it will be good. Even though I’m busy, I have friends who keep me accountable and are always looking for a gym buddy, so I always have someone asking me to go. So I’ve been more active, but I’m also in a better place with my self esteem. I still have issues with myself. I obviously wish I was skinnier, but I’m doing something to change that, and in the meantime, I’m realizing all the things about me that are beautiful. I have a pretty face—pretty green eyes and a cute nose. I really like my hair (and I’m even thinking about getting it cut in a pretty new style!) And I like my big boobs! ;)
Anyways, the point is. No matter where you’re at in your weight loss journey, don’t forget to enjoy where your at. Stop and take a look in the mirror and really look. Look at all the things about yourself that are beautiful. Make a list of them! It will make you feel great and help you see how amazing you are!
One more thing: Don’t forget to pay it forward and compliment others! That’s one thing I’m working on this year. I love to people watch, and I used to just sit and notice all the pretty things about people, but I wouldn’t tell them! And why not? Why not make someone’s day and help her feel better about herself? Like that girl’s hair? Tell her! Think that girl’s sweater or shoes are cute? Tell her! Think that guy has really pretty eyes? Tell him! I’ve been doing it more often, and I have yet to have someone throw a shoe at me or tell me to go away. I usually get the opposite reaction.
