Self Acceptance

“Accept everything about yourself–I mean everything, You are you and that is the beginning and the end–no apologies, no regrets.”
– Clark Moustakas

I’ve decided that I am the size and weight I’m supposed to be.  This weight loss journey has been a long one, but yesterday as I was beating myself up for fluctuating within the same 5 to 10 pounds, I realized that I’m the weight and size I’m meant to be. 

That doesn’t mean I will quit exercising.  Quite the opposite.  I enjoy exercising, but I also enjoy good food, and yummy drinks as well!  As long as I don’t abuse these yummy foods and drinks, I’ll be OK. 

So this is it.  I’m happy.  It takes the guilt out of enjoying rich foods from time to time. As I’ve said over and over, this is a lifestyle and not a diet.  I will always be active as it’s part of who I am now…it’s part of life.  I will continue to eat consciously…which is Key. 

Life is too short to be filled with guilt associated with food.  It’s time to move past that and embrace my life and who I am now.  Active, healthy, and full of respect for the whole process!
