If you asked my friends and family to describe me, most would say I’m a confident person. The truth is though that in my head I’m constantly of comparing myself to others in terms of looks, professional skills, clothes and even life. I can always find a fault and can start to get mired down in the most minute of details. It makes me both sad and even frustrated. Why do I do that to myself?
Look, I know there is always going to be somebody thinner, richer, better looking and more accomplished than I am. That’s just life. I need to keep my focus on what I like and love about myself. Why? Because loving yourself is having self-respect which is the only way to create love and happiness in our lives to share with others.
So what do I like about myself?
Lately I’ve been thinking about the Aesop fable “The Tortoise and The Hare” and how it correlates to my Shaklee180 weight loss process.
When I started this journey three months ago I was like the hare. I was super strict in following the plan and daily calorie intake and the pounds just peeled off. In fact, that first month I lost an incredible 11 pounds! Woo Hoo, I could do this! Then we had our family vacation to Disney and when I returned home and saw that the scale didn’t go up, I started to get a little cocky.
