I Am Proud of Who I AM not What I Look Like

In my monthly check in post last week, I said a couple times that I was proud of myself. I’ve been thinking about that word a lot since then and I wanted to clarify what I mean.

I am proud of myself

  • that I am making my health a priority
  • that I am tracking my food even when it’s a donut
  • that I am working through my food anxieties and developing a healthy relationship with food

 

My self worth does NOT depend on

  • the number on the scale
  • if I go over/under my macros or calories
  • if I am “skinny”
  • if I have muscles or loose skin
  • if I run a super fast mile/marathon

 

I have good days and bad days. “Healthy” meals and “cheat” meals. Times where all I want is to eat an entire sheet cake and days when I can step back and look at the big picture and drag my butt off to the gym.
