I’ve always had a problem with the “skinny” picture that I hold in my head. It’s the picture that I think I should be aiming for. Reality is .. it’s not very realistic. For some reason, this woman that I’ve pictured is tiny and petite. Where in the world did that come from .. I’m almost 5′ 10″ tall and I have size 11 feet. Common sense tells me that even if I lose 100 pounds, I’ll never be petite. Weird how our mind messes with us, isn’t it? I’ve decided to have no picture in my head anymore. I’ll get to where I need to be when I get there. I’ll look how I’m supposed to look, and I’ll be okay with it. One thing is for certain though, I’ll never be “little”. With that in mind, I’m not even going to begin to guess what the number on the scale should be. I really, really don’t know what my normal, healthy weight should be, so I’m not going to stress about it. The self-torture is officially over.
Check this picture out … all of these woman weigh the same amount and their bodies are totally different. Maybe that “magic” number really isn’t all that telling is it? If you’re in the same boat as me .. lets agree that our goal will be to be healthy and happy, no matter where we end up.
