What can you do that will help you change how you feel?
The point of everything we do is to feel better, to love our life and enjoy the moment of now. How can you enjoy it if you are constantly worrying about how much you weigh or what you are putting in your mouth; change your focus.
I don’t like the word exercise I believe that doing activities that are fun and active are more important than doing "exercise". I believe it is more important to how you feel. If you feel like crap while you are doing exercise and hating it the whole time or wishing it was over, how is that helping your body and mind? It is all about doing what you love, that makes you smile; radiating happiness makes you look beautiful.
Wouldn’t it be better to be loving whatever it is that you are doing? I believe that adding activities that you love are more important such as walking and dancing; make it fun. If you don't love it don't do it. Whatever you choose to do add more movement into your body in fun ways and you will begin to see a difference.
What else can you do to feel good about yourself that would encourage you to eat healthier?
How do you walk? Do you have lightness in your step, do you sway your hips, do you consciously place your feet on the earth? Do you sashay, do you walk fast, do you walk slow, do you saunter? Do you smile when you walk? Are you enjoying your walk, do you feel like a wild and juicy woman with secrets that make you smile; remembering when you danced in your living room to your favorite song.
No more scale no more looking at how much you weigh or how much you have lost or gained. No more. It is time to love your body as it is; bring fun back into your life and allow your choices to slowly become healthier because you have begun to love yourself more. You will naturally begin to choose healthier and healthier choices.
Reward yourself by doing something fun like going to a museum or concert. You will smile more because of all the fun you are having. Not for someone else. When anxiety pops up, like you know it will, you can breathe and remember it is one step at a time, one dance at a time, and just one movement at a time to get to where you want to be. Don’t be in a hurry. Love the moment. Smile and enjoy the feelings of knowing you are learning to love yourself more.
What can you do today that is fun? What one thing can you do differently that will add more movement into your life that you would enjoy doing?
I know you can do it. If I can do it you can do it. I have added just a couple of things that I am doing differently and I have noticed that I am slowly feeling better about me and having a genuine love for myself.
Losing weight and getting healthy doesn’t have to be torture. It all comes down to how you feel about yourself. That is where it started anyway wasn’t it? You didn’t feel good about yourself so you reached for food; I know I did and still do sometimes. Forgive yourself, love yourself, be okay with who you are and where you are right now.

Remember... Throw away your scale; it is about feeling good now not how much you weigh.
