so todays post is inspired by my current weight loss journey. i have begun to realise that loosing weight isn't really going to make me feel any better because inside i will still feel bigger than all of my friends. in fact my journey needs to be about me accepting myself not trying to change myself.
it's easy for anyone to say 'well I'm ugly because no one compliments me' or 'i'm ugly because i never get any guys'. i'm totally guilty of this. lets be honest we all are.
i compare myself to my friends all the time. when people asked me why i wanted to loose weight i never said i wanted to be healthier or i wanted to fit into my jeans (although these were a bonus), i would say 'i want to be like my friends' in my head i was fifty thousand sizes bigger when infact i was only 2 or 3. yes i was bigger and yes in pictures i could see it. but how many other people really looked at that same picture and thought 'oh this is nice but look at that girl shes so much fatter than anyone else'. answer: NO-ONE. because as hard as it was for me to accept, they probably aren't even thinking about me at all let alone thinking something horrible.
people seem to have this feeling that people must be thinking horrid things about them but its just not true. they probably have a million things on their mind just like you and your clothes size or hair cut just don't fall into the equation. i'm saying we're all self centred but we are all guilty of this and when you really think about it you realise just how true it is.
so we all ( myself included) need to stop being so hard on ourselves. society today dictates so much about ourselves and why should we conform to the way everyone else looks or is. we need to be happy in ourselves and if after that we still want to loose weight then great! and if not then put on an outfit that makes you feel great and just feel happy inside.
