Can you relate?…

This fantastic post from Katie for Life is worth the quick read…  it’s about body image and how life is just too short to spend hating your body.

I know I can certainly relate.  Especially now at one of my all time highest weights.  Heck, I hated my body when I was a thin little thing.  I recall my Mom thinking I was bulimic because I ate to no end & manged to keep a great figure.  I look back at that body now & think how I’d kill for it….but you know what…whatever demons in my head would still have me hating it.

I’m currently working on those demons.  I’m seeing a wellness coach to get my act together.  I can’t do this alone anymore.  I’m not getting anywhere.  He asked me great question…  “If I put a tape recorder up to your head – what would I hear?”  Ya know what I told him…a LOT of negative self talk.  It’s really true.

I’m not dumb…I know how to eat & what to eat…I just don’t DO IT!  There’s those voices in my head that keep fighting with me.  That’s what we’re working on.  It’s going to be a long process because lets face it – it took almost 37 years for those voices to grow – it’s not going to be an overnight process to send them packing.

Does anyone else have those voices in their heads?  I know I can’t be the only one…  What are some of the things you’ve done to show them whose boss?

  1. Can definitely relate! Dealing with the same issue so I have no tips. I call it my demon.

    Thanks for the shout out. I’m interested to hear how things progress with your coach. I’ve often thought of seeing someone to help me out. It’s such a struggle sometimes!

      I’ll definitely keep you posted! I’ve realized I can’t keep going this alone. Friends are awesome, but when we’re going through the same struggles it’s so difficult for us to both/all stay focused.

      I love your blog – I find myself relating to a LOT of what you post!
