I am starting my Weight Watchers journey AFTER the big move to Pittsburgh this weekend.. I've been so anxious about meeting new people (knitting group) because I have felt so awful about my appearance. Then I thought to myself, if I can't accept me, who will? I'd love to lose oodles of weight and look slim and trim as well as be healthier over all - but if I don't, I'd better start being able to face myself every morning.
So today, I stopped 'waiting' until I was thinner to buy clothes and a bathing suit. I went shopping! I got only a few things, but I decided that no matter the size, I was worthy of a little fun and beauty. Someone who shall remain nameless once told me that if I lost weight, she'd buy me a dress.. You know what? I don't need to lose weight to buy a new dress. I may not be perfect, but perfect is boring (of course I have to say this, I'm a beginner knitter and none of my projects are perfect!) and life is too short not to live it.
So, I will eat healthier. NO DIETING!! I will join Weight Watchers and re-learn how to eat sensibly. I will love myself no matter what. Maybe now I won't put off knitting a sweater for myself (always afraid it wouldn't be the right size by the time I finished it).
Life is too wonderful to waste wishing and hoping. Live it. Do it. Be it. Love it. TODAY! :)
