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.
