Tuesday Inspiration

I love a good story, heck we all do, about people who have been there and done that, when it comes to what you want to do.  Today's story caught my eye because of the 'after' picture.  She really looks like she could kick your ass.  Then I read her story - and she can.  LOL.

Sweta's story is on the Women's Health Magazine website, but I wanted to share her before and after picture here, so you could get the idea.  Not only has she lost 95 pounds, but she has gained confidence and has a real respect for herself, you can tell just by looking at her.

That's one of the biggest things we're all looking for as we try to lose weight - respect.  Sometimes from others, because we are so often written off for being fat.  But mostly from ourselves.  We lost our way when it comes to self-appreciation and self-control, that has added up to many an internal insult and a constant boxing match of conflicting emotion.

This is a reminder to stop beating yourself up and instead turn the aggression outward to beat the real problem.

Yours in Health,
