Okay, so maybe not, but I know she had a big part in it. At least, as to why my self esteem sucks. I know she meant well, it just didn't work.
So, why do I bring this up? Well, this morning we were discussing my cousins wedding. She got engaged last night and the wedding is in August.
My mom says "well, you have until August to lose some weight."
I know, in my head, that this is a logical statement...one that I was thinking of myself but all I heard was "you would be so pretty if you just lost 10 lbs."
I hope that I can instill positive self esteem in my daughter and god help me if I ever make her feel the way my mom makes me feel.
Thank goodness my husband is awesome and always says things like "I don't know why you are trying to lose weight, you are beautiful, but I am proud of you for being healthy." (I heart him).
Well, that is my whine for the day.
i am sucking big time. Just not so motivated and don't know why. Still making good choices, but too many of them.
