Learning to love me

I haven't been my biggest fan. In fact, I'm my worst critic most of the time. I used to look at others who are thin & envy them & want to be them. Now I am starting to feel differently. I don't want to be them, but I want to be a thinner version of me. I want to love myself and not be disgusted with myself when I look in the mirror. The pounds are melting away with a lot of perseverance and hard work. It's only been a month, but I already feel different. I'm excited to see what the future holds for me as I walk through this journey. I know that I will always struggle with my weight. Even when I reach my goal, I will continue with my journey for the rest of my life. That's why it's important to make this a lifestyle change and not a diet. I don't feel deprived. I do miss the fatty, fried foods. I'm trying to find other ways to reward myself when I do well. But, dang. I want to eat an entire plate of potato skins. Doesn't that sound so yummy? Oh well. Maybe when I reach my first goal of 42 pounds, I will reward myself with that! But for now, I will settle with my low fat foods and find other ways to reward myself...
