This is something I definitely have to get over or at least work on improving. While things have gotten a bit better since beginning to like myself more as the weight has come off, there is still room for improvement.
I felt fat, inadequate and like no one could love me. Even if someone did say and show that they loved me I still felt like I wasn’t worth it. I tried so hard at many things and even when I “succeeded” I still felt like I could have done better. I’ve been this way most of my life and it doesn’t all stem from being overweight, but I think that’s partially why I become overweight because I stopped caring about myself.
I’m so happy to have found some self-worth, I do actually want to care about myself now. I want to better myself and be a good example for my daughter. I never want her to feel not worth it or not good enough. I’m going to try my best to do what I can to keep her self-esteem high and to show her that she is worth everything.
I work hard for the things I have. I’d say I am a very functional responsible adult and this has only improved as I’ve lost weight. I’ve slowly been gaining more confidence and feeling that my actions are good enough. I don’t want to diminish my work, I want to be proud of losing about 86 pounds (in 3 1/2 years) and 66 of those pounds in the last 7 months with SlimGenics. I should feel amazing and really proud, but sometimes that’s really hard for me. Like I said, it has improved and will continue to improve as I live a healthy lifestyle and learn to love myself.
What’s something you do that IS good enough and how to you make yourself feel worth something?
