Personal: It's Ok Not To Be Ok


I hear people say all the time that things would be better if they were thinner, richer, in love, etc but I often wonder if these people realise how silly they sound. I am not saying that I don't do it too, but yesterday after a well deserved 2lb gain at Slimming World I came home and had a cry.


Not because I had gained, but because of how much it got to me. I am 25 years old, I am very happily married, I have a job that I enjoy, I have wonderful friends and yet that number on the scale gets to me time and time again.

I look at the photo above and I miss my long hair. I miss how I look there, and yet I remember feeling big. I had lost 1 stone 5lbs before my holiday and all I could think about was how I had been a failure because I hadn't lost the other stone to get to my target. 

Mental.

Anyway, two goals for the next week:

1. Drink More Water

2. Do more exercise.

As long as I do these two things I know I will be on the way to better health, regardless of what the scales say.

  1. They're some great goals! You're going to get there, one step at a time. I think everyone feels like this from time to time, but it's when people focus on these type of feelings constantly & at the detriment to all the good things that are happening that it's a real worry. You're not one of those people, you know that there's always going to be something that could be better, but don't let that make you miserable. You're awesome! Xx
