Good morning beautiful people! I know it has been a while since I posted, but my cake business really picked up and I have been doing everything to help my son prepare for college and his upcoming high school graduation. I promise to get back on my game. Because this is the type of stuff that can derail your weight loss and before you know it you have gain 10, 20 or 30 pound back. I got a lot stuff I want to share with you guys so I will be blogging more.
I want to discuss self image for a minute. You know self image is one of the hardest thing anybody can deal with. When you pass by a mirror and you still see your previous overweight self. Nevertheless it makes it hard to accept compliments from others. I know this is a major issue of mine. Somebody will be like “Tracy girl you are looking good”….and my dumb butt will reply:
“Yea girl but you don’t want to see me naked. ” (Really who wants to see you naked…I got to stop saying this)
“Or shoot I ought to….I can barely eat anything” here another one..
“Did you see this excess skin under my arms, I can knock someone out with these bat wings.”
“Or girl it is that girdle holding everything in”.
Why can’t I just say thank you and keep it moving. For whatever reason I will attach something negative that I am concerned about to it every time. I know others who do this also. It is just hard for some people to accept compliments because we are always so hard on ourselves. Plus I don’t want to get comfortable with all the compliments and think I am fine and I don’t have to put in work anymore.
I am working on my short coming and doing my best to do better. When all I got say is thank you and keep it moving.
Happy Easter everyone!
Peace, Love and Happiness!!
