Weight a Minute... Part Two

Today I am featured on Random Blogette discussing my history of eating and self-esteem issues. If you recall, I had touched on this topic recently. What I share in my guest post flowed from my fingers like therapy, but was painful and a little raw too.

I have struggled with food and healthy habits for a long time, and although every day is certainly not all rainbows and sunshine, I think I have reached a point in my life where I have a pretty good attitude about my body and how I treat it. However, it's taken me more than a decade to get to this place. Health and feeling good, unfortunately, is not a magical and quick process. I think we all want more for ourselves in this arena. We want to every day feel vibrant, light, and healthy. But the reality is that life happens. No matter how good I feel, I still have days where I make bad choices and feel a little guilty about it. The difference, I think, is that I can stop myself from going into an all day (or week) downward spiral. I can pick myself up and start over from that moment. I can remember that my ultimate goal is to be a good example for my daughter and to live a long, healthy life.

My wish is for all my readers to have the same kind of healthy goals for themselves.
