I read this in this months "Australia Womens Health & Fitness", and felt like sharing it-

'Rational thoughts tell you that there are people who love you, you have a good home, job, etc. Your mind assures you that you should be appreciative for what you have, so why the hell worry about a little extra weight? You have a great life right?
But honestly, in the dead of the night or when the sun isnt shining so brightly in your corner, you are unhappy about your weight. You are disappointed with the way you look and you want to look & feel better. As the urge rises in your chest to finally do something about it, it is again beaten away for another day by the prominent waves that tell you to stop being so vain and be happy for what you already have. A vicious cycle erupts and you become caught in a mental tug-of-war.

"The limitations you have are within your mind!!!!!!!!!!!!"

Lite & Easy gal!

hi jess its true isnt it. when things arent going well in your life in different areas it really impacts on your weight and how you percieve yourself. when things are going excellently, we all seem to be able to have more control over that part of ourselves.

thanks for sharing
