The Older Sister / Be Good To You! | The Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans LLC


So….there are four days left in 2013. It’s that time of year when we reassess what we’ve done this year and what we will change next year. Every year, I set the same goal as the year before. I will lose weight and get in shape. Every year, I get a little closer to that goal.

I’ve kind of changed my perspective for next year. I saw this video and it really made me think. Maybe how I see myself isn’t like what other people see. Maybe I am way to hard on myself.

I came across this list of ten steps to a positive body image. Now, I had two things that got me thinking. These are pretty awesome!

What if I have been beating myself up year after year when I was already pretty awesome? Don’t get me wrong. I still have every intention of keeping the goals that I set for myself each year. I am making slow and steady process and I know that is how I am going to keep the weight off. I didn’t put the weight on overnight and it won’t come off overnight either.

I keep reading these ten steps. I think that if I can tackle #4 and #6, I’ll have an amazing start to 2014. What about you? Are there steps here that you think could help you?

Here’s what I think. If we all make that top 10 list of things we like about ourselves like it says in #2 and keep it where we can see it everyday, maybe we can begin to see ourselves in a new light. Maybe we can see ourselves as the second sketch instead of the first sketch. Wouldn’t that be a refreshing change?

I think that 2014 can the year that we can learn to be good to ourselves. We can focus on the positive and not the negative. Think of what a different feeling that could be.

The older I get, the more I believe that the only person who is responsible for making me happy is me. It has taken me a long time to get to this point in my life, but it’s a great feeling. Don’t let it take you 59 years to be good to you. You deserve the effort now. We all do!
