— To love myself completely. Yup, there will be days I feel
puffy fat, or my face will be spotty, but I will still love myself.
— To not obsess about calories. Yes, this is hard. But if I go a little over my calories, no big deal, if I want to eat some chocolate (yay portion control) I will. This is my life, I don’t want to live in a self-inflicted bubble.
— To push myself. There will be days I don’t want to work out, or cook dinner, or calculate my calories. But those are the times I should do it more than ever.
— To rest. While I’ll push myself, I won’t overdo it and burn myself out.
— To listen to my body. Am I really hungry? Am I thirsty? Am I pushing too hard? Can I push harder?
— To realize this is my life. I will not live by the standards of others. I will not let other dictate what I should and should not say, do, or eat; unless it’s my choice.
— To not set a deadline. It took me 3+ years to put on this weight, I will not dictate how long it takes to come off, nor will I be upset about the rate at which I lose the weight. It’s coming off, that’s amazing.
— To love my (tumblr) neighbor. The world is so full of hate, we don’t need more. I will never send a mean anon message; I will never call anyone ugly; I will ignore the green-eyed monster and cheer on my fellow fitblrs—never cutting someone down for their accomplishments.
— To celebrate my accomplishments. I’ve lost almost 50 lbs! I’ve lost 43+ inches. Like my guns accomplishment! Yeah, I will not lose sight of that.
— To live, to the best of my ability, a happy, healthy life. This one, I think, is self explanatory.
