I’m sorry but no. I’m never gonna fully love my body. I’ll love it a little more when I do get the body that I’ve been trying to get all these years but I’m always gonna find something bad. Even if I try hard I won’t so ye.
NO IM SORRY. where does this really come from? because it is NOT that clever. i love my body a little more by EVERY DAY i lose weight. and i wanna go out more and wear tight clothes AND IM ALSO HAPPIER. and do not try and tell me its because of this and that because IT IS because i find more peace in my own body, since to me looking good is kind of important. so whats above here is kind of a big lie.
I used to share the same mindset. ^ Then I began to reevaluate how much pressure I put on myself, my body and my overall feelings regarding my body. I stopped basing my happiness on my progress, current appearance, number on the scale, etc. I realized I am worth more than the extra flesh on my body, the cellulite on my legs and the stretch marks on my hips.
The fact that someone says “I’ll always find something bad regardless” (about their body/themselves) is saddening. It also validates this very post. The pressure we put on ourselves to fit into this unrealistic ideal is just ridiculous. Don’t focus on what you think are flaws and imperfections, instead, embrace them and realize that they are apart of you. It isn’t a lie at all, actually. It isn’t some cheesey-cliche bullshit, its the simple truth. Love yourself, be positive, don’t create a negative self-image and bully yourself. There is enough shit in life to deal with without a person dragging themselves down with negative thoughts.
I don’t know, I guess people will feel how they want about it. People told me the same shit and every time I said “I will never be happy until I am at -so and so- weight”. I was just so stubborn and stuck on the fact that I’d always be unhappy with myself..but when you begin to realize the weight on the scale is nothing but a silly number, jean sizes mean nothing when it comes to your worth as a human being and beauty isn’t a dress size you stop putting so much importance on the superficial part of living a healthy lifestyle and weightloss.
Weightloss, sure, it is empowering to some, and it is a great relief to feel amazing in a tiny bikini or whatever but it also means being happy and healthy, mentally and physically. I feel like many people seem to forget the mental part of this, your weightloss journey should not only focus on the physical appearance, but also your overall mental health and your relationship with your body.
I can’t hate myself all the way down to “target weight/body fat %”. What good will come of that? I love my body, I respect it and I do want to mold it into a fit, athletic body. However I can accept the fact there are things I simply cannot change about myself. And instead of tearing myself apart on a daily basis, I compliment myself and reassure myself I have made so much progress and have accomplished a lot, and that is something to be proud of. My body can do amazing things, its strong, it’s healthy and that really makes me happy.
Just my two cents I guess.

Be awesome TODAY.
Its funny how I would hear/read people’s stories about how they lost weight and most say, “if I can do it so can you!” And of course I’d think thats easy for them to say.. psh.
Now I get it. Now I’m here instead of over there. I always tell people “if I can do it than so can you!”
And yet now I don’t care what anyone says.. I’m so proud of myself. I prove myself to myself now- not others.
I’m going to try and not weigh myself as often this round. Lets see what I look like in this shirt at the end of January!
I cannot wait to start my loading days tomorrow and Christmas day! I put off round 3 of HCG so I could relax a little and get out some. Being on a strict 500 calorie diet kinda makes me a hermit. I need to stay in my own little world while on it so I can keep focus on my goals. Though I’m going to try to venture out more this round. We’ll see…
I’ve gained about 10 lbs back in 3 months because of holidays and being stupid but I’m trying not to let that bring me down. It could of been worse and I’m picking myself back up!
Simple solutions really, I ate as well as I could, drank a lot of water and worked out most every day. Before ~ 265 After ~150 6’0
By the end of next year, you could have your dream body
