Re: Dealing with my imperfect body
I'm not going to go on the diet and exercise rant. Or how perfect you can be with xyz combo of whatever.
But what I have noticed, is that while I myself even though I am young and have no kids have imperfections, they weigh on me a lot less and I mean A LOT less, now that i've been actively taking care of my diet and exercise.
I'm not a pefect 10, I'm not a perfect anything, but the self loathing I had at the end of my marriage and for almost a year after, is gone. i don't shudder when I look in the mirror, I don't lock myself up. I think the endorphins released, or whatever happens REALLY affected that, mixed with the confidence of "I'm taking care of me" I could really care less about where I'm not perfect.
Do something to take care of you that makes you feel good. Doesn't matter what it is, even if it's a new hair cut. doing something to make you feel good, makes you feel like you look good. screw the stick figures, you bore 4 children, that's more than I ever hope to accomplish.
