I have challenged myself to not say anything negative about my appearance in front of my daughter. (Really, I’m trying not to say anything negative about myself or others.) Anyway, thus far this has proven very difficult. *Read my week one post for my goals and ways you can help.
WIN: I cleaned out my dresser and got rid of those clothes I know I will never wear again. I was concerned it would make me feel sad that they don’t fit my mom bod. Interestingly, it had the opposite effect. It was cathartic! I was so glad to shed that extra stuff and make room in my dresser for the articles of clothing that make me feel good about myself.
LOSS: I called myself fat (again). My husband said something about saving his dinner leftovers for lunch the following day. He mentioned that the portions of dinner were “so huge” or “really big,” and that was that. All I heard was “how could anyone who isn’t a huge beast eat all of this?” So, I said I was going to eat all of mine because I was really fat, and I thanked him for pointing it out. I really hope I can do better next week.
How did you do this week?
