attitude of gratitude....

this week i'm grateful to stop and actually look in the mirror

you see i've been avoiding the mirror for quite awhile now, i don't look in it at all, i'm disgusted at what is staring at me...

i know that i am beautiful on the inside, i know i am a fabulous person, wife, mumma, friend etc etc

i know that the superficial me doesn't matter

thats not what i'm talking about

i'm disgusted that i've let myself go and i am so unhealthy, i'm overweight and unfit. i'm so disgusted this is the role model i am being for my daughters and that makes me cry

this is what i'm talking about

i owe it to myself to look in the mirror and SEE what is there and stop denying it and FIX it

this is my life and i want to live a healthier one than i currently am

i'm sick on the excuses i make for myself



i finally put batteries in the scales, took note of the number, had a good hard look at myself and changed how i'm doing things... this started on monday and here i already am at the end of the week feeling better about myself

some times being grateful means looking at the bad in your life and being grateful that you can change it before its too late

Your comment "some times being grateful means looking at the bad in your life and being grateful that you can change it before its too late" is so very true.

Get stuck in there, love. You will win if you just keep going and going and going.

I rarely look in mirrors. Who has the time!? x

I'm currently in the same position as you. Trying to turn things around. It certainly isn't easy...but you are off to a good start. Best wishes.
