I feel like I am throwing myself my own personal pity party today, I just feel frustrated. I am trying to learn to love myself, flaws and all, but that doesn't mean I can't try to improve myself right. No harm in that. But when I am working hard and not seeing any results I start to feel really frustrated.
Today my pity party theme is my hips, butt, and thighs. I try to be proud of these because they are the result of carrying 3 babies, and I wouldn't trade my babies for anything. But my youngest baby is now five and I feel like I should do something about it. I want to enjoy time at the pool with my kids and that means feeling good in a swim suit. So I have been trying, working out a ton, and counting my calories.
But the weight is still hanging on for dear life.
I started a protein diet on a recommendation and I feel great, I started seeing results, but then they stopped and I gained 3 pounds.
Which is when I decided to throw my pity party.
The hubs seems to think I am just bloated and maybe I shouldn't get on the scale for a few weeks. I am thinking about taking his advice, drinking lots of water, really watching what protein I eat, cut out the sugar, and limit my carbs.
I want to love my body just like it is, but I feel in order to do that I need to improve a few things.
Why as Women do we do this?
I want to be a healthy example for my girls, I want to love me for me. I want them to be healthy, and eat healthy because they want to, not because they are afraid of the weight they are gaining.
I work out because I like how it makes me feel, yes I want the fat gone from my hips, thighs and butt, but even when it is I will still continue working out because I feel good and that is all that matters.
But I also have to work on loving me for me, and it isn't easy, but I will keep trying because I am worth it!!
