Positive thoughts is the way to go

I think being positive about yourself is very important if you want to loose weight and get healthier. It seems to be a process. I was reading a post from Roni the other day on her blog and I have been disturbed by it for the last two days. I don't understand why women feel the need to beat themselves up if they are not thin enough in their own minds?

We all have days where we feel fat or unattractive or any of that...but to feel that way regularly is not a good thing. I can't help but think there comes a point in life when it isn't all about your weight and you realize you have more to offer to the world than your body. From now on I want to focus on being positive and not feel the need to pick at things from a weight perspective. Of course I want to loose weight still, but I am not going to talk down to myself or punish myself to achieve my goals. That is just not worth it!

It is just so sad to see so many beautiful women hate themselves over 10 or 20 pounds. I keep wondering where it comes from and I think a lot of it comes from Hollywood. I found an interesting article the other day about celebs diet secrets. It is sad..but in a way they do get paid to look good. For most women, it is not their job and they need to just try their best to keep things together...but you don't have to be perfect.

If anyone out their is feeling bad about their body on a regular basis, go see a psychotherapist, get a massage or go to yoga, etc. I would encourage you to try to find out why you are treating yourself badly and try to grow from it. It is important as a women to learn how to nurture yourself, not break yourself down.
