April 27,13 Too much criticizing
Summer is approaching and bathing suit season is just around the corner. So many of us LOVE pulling the old swimsuit out or heading to the store to buy a new one. Lets face it, most women don’t enjoy the first reveal in a swimsuit. We of course feel better as the summer moves on but that initial showing can be painful.
This section of my blog is going to be dedicated to summer tips. Things that I have done over the last two summer’s that have helped me maintain my weight loss. I will also be posting additional info that I find and think you all may find interesting/helpful. Please know that some of the things I will suggest, I still struggle with. I will forever be a work in progress. I will suggest things to you all that are reminders to me. So here we go!
My first and most important tip: Stop being so critical of yourself and wear your summer clothing with confidence!!! Sounds rather hypocritical of me to say I know. It may surprise you to know this but I actually can be positive. I have my down phases, like as of late, but I have also had moments when I thought I was pretty bad ass.
WE ARE OUR OWN WORST CRITIC. WE SEE THINGS THAT BOTHER US ABOUT OUR APPEARANCE/BODIES THAT OTHERS DO NOT SEE. Please watch the following clip. It is amazing what we see and what others see.
We’d be hard pressed to find anyone who wouldn’t change something about themselves. It’s all good and well to joke as long as we don’t truly believe the jokes. We must find the good. I can be one of the worlds worst when it comes to how I feel or how I describe myself. Last summer when I wore my bathing suit I felt great about it. How? I wore confidence with it and I focused on the things about my appearance that made me happy!
