Love Yourself Now!

I admit it.  I am my worst critic.  I worry, okay obsess, way too much about the last ten pounds I have wanted to lose for the last year and a half.  As I have been reading my "Simple Abundance" daybook every morning, there is a lot of encouragement about loving yourself.  In fact, just last week, I made a list of 10 things I love about my body and 10 things I love about my personality in my gratitude journal.  Great exercise, by the way - (I urge you to do it!).

I have begun to realize lately that my obsession with my weight or more specifically my tummy fat, is doing me no favors in getting the body I want!  More importantly, it is putting me in danger of some negative behavior in front of my two young and very impressionable daughters.

So, in the spirit of living the life I want now (hope you read Tuesday's post), I read this article on making peace with one's body and am vowing to do just that.  Who's with me?
