I am struggling with the increase in weight coming to this lifestyle... I know i have done some irreparable damage to my body, and I know I really need to allow myself to heal, but goodness me it is difficult! I told myself I needed to throw away the scales, but today at the gym I couldnt help but jump on and I was shocked at what I saw... I am only 3 or so months into this lifestyle, and I KNOW it's a long term healing process, but the fact of the matter is I have a diagnosed MENTAL disorder that nearly killed me 3 years ago and it is not going to simply go away overnight! Please, if anybody has experience in managing the thoughts and improving body image and self confidence, please comment below so it can help others like myself.
Hope you are all okay, and sending loves and rainbows your way!
Hi cath !
how r u today ?
i ve experienced thesame as you. And I know with all my heart and soul that this lifestyle is good for me. But oh that damn weight... I could give it all up for that stupid voice in my head that calls me fat.
What helps me a lot is that I realise I have other qualities and talents in stead of my image.
Helping out , giving love to myself and others. Be good to yourself and grateful for everything good in your life.
At the end of my day I do a pillowtalk with my boyfriend .
Without talking back to eachother you say what went difficult today.
than you talk about what Did went good that day.
And at last you say how you feel that moment.
It helps me live in the moment.
hope it helped a little bit.
Rainbows back to you !
