Time for Some Self-Affirmation

Being overweight sure does a lot of things to your ego.

I’ve noticed that since I’ve regained a lot of the weight I had previously lost, I’ve become more mean to myself. I tend to put myself down and joke about myself. I guess by hiding in the guise of humor, I’m able to hide away my insecurities about myself. Also, by bringing in humor, I appear like I don’t really care much about what people say when they see me waddle down the hall. Oops, there it is again: putting myself down.

Today I will take time to affirm myself: despite being overweight, I think I look pretty okay 🙂 At times, I would even say I look good, or at least I carry myself well enough. That doesn’t mean though I still wouldn’t want to lose weight. I mean, if I come across safe diet pills I probably wouldn’t hesitate to take them, but in the meantime, I am trying to be kinder to myself, especially when it comes to weight issues.

    Beauty is just SKIN-DEEP 🙂 i always tell myself that who i am is what matters most, being a good person with a good heart makes me feel i am the most beautiful person in the world.. after all, beauty slowly fades away.. but the love of the people around us makes us feel we are gorgeous 🙂

    inner beauty is more important. when we have a good outlook in life, beauty will show physically. tama yan, affirm oneself parati. it’s not just you dapat everybody else should do it. ako rin. hehehe

    If you have self confidence it doesn’t really matter what you look like. As long as you can carry yourself well.
