Despite losing weight, unfortunately I am not going to magically love my body and let go of the 25+ years of self-loathing. I don't want to hate my body anymore and I wish I didn't hate it before I lost weight too.
I am finding that learning to love my body is something I have to actively work on every day. I am trying to do this by:
- Eating foods that make me feel energised, satisfied and happy
- Wearing clothes that make me feel confident and attractive
- Not weighing myself
- Exercising to make my body feel stronger and not depleting it of all energy and strength
- Accepting my body for the way it looks today and not how it could look in the future
Sometimes ice cream helps too...
