Since being posted 2 weeks ago this video has had over 14 million views on Youtube. Colbie Caillat was fed up of being photoshopped…must see!
I haven’t blogged for a couple of weeks. I’ve been lucky enough to be on holiday for two weeks, sailing around Croatia as part of The Yacht Week. I went with 6 gorgeous girls who I got on great with and we all had a fab holiday apart from…
The little voice in my head that would constantly remind me that I wasn’t as skinny as the other girls I was on holiday with and somehow that made me less worthy. It’s a horrible feeling, letting your weight dictate who you are, how you feel and what you’re entitled to but above all that, it’s fake, false, fictitious. It’s an interpretation, an opinion and a perspective and it’s MINE. Nobody else’s. So the good news about an interpretation/opinion/perspective is that it can be changed and in my case it WILL be changed. It has to.
If I learnt anything from this holiday it’s that my perceptions of myself are the only thing that stop me living life to the full. Being happy with who I am and what I do and so having also celebrated my 27th birthday while I was away I’ve made myself a little promise that for this year of age, focusing on my self-worth/self-esteem and self love has to be my number one priority. Once I’ve figured that out, everything else will fall into place.
The irony is, I actually lost a little weight being away and the secret? I ate completely normally (including drinking alcohol). What I wanted, when I wanted. It meant no binges, no cravings. What does it show me? That losing weight is just as much about what goes on in your head as well as what goes in your body.
I look forward to weighing in on Monday and sharing with you my stats then but till then. Embrace your inner piglet. We might all look different on the outside but we’re all equal. It’s up to you to believe it. To believe in yourself.
