How have you been overly critical of yourself lately? I really beat myself up about my weight gain lately. I lost my pregnancy weight a few years ago and kept it off really well. I looked really good. I was a healthy BMI and clothes fit well. Then my head started to hurt all the time. I was put on Ativan and muscle relaxers. My depression got worse as my pain did. I stopped watching my food intake, began eating junk food and quit walking 10k steps per day. I gained weight. I think I'm larger now than I've ever been. I'm not huge but am large for me. Every time I got dressed or saw my reflection is make a mental note to lose weighty asap. I refused to buy new clothes because I new I would lose weight eventually. And I would constantly tell my hubby that I was fat and needed to lose weight. My stomach wobbles too much. My thighs look fat etc etc etc. Fortunately, now I'm trying to be much nicer to myself, this weekend, as per this program, I finally decided to stop beating be up on myself. The truth is I would like to get back to a healthy BMI as I feel more confident and comfortable. But I'm going to stop saying I'm fat and need to lose weight. In going to stop criticizing my body. I also finally bought new underware that actually fits. And the truth is, I realize - I really don't look so bad - sure I'm chubby, but i actually look more friendly for it - more cuddly, more welcoming!
