For many years I have held dear to a mental picture of the woman that I would love to become. She is lean, fit and strong. She does not look like an anorexic fitness model with fake boobs.She is age appropriate and comfortable in her own skin. She radiates confidence, calm and self assurance with the odd snarky comment thrown in for good measure. lol
This cleanse for me is not a new beginning. I have been working on my diet and exercise, lifestyle and head for many years. I feel no compulsion or pressure to succeed. I feel I have already succeeded and made many wonderful lasting changes that have really improved my quality of life. I accept with humility that there is no "end" that is is ongoing with gentle adjustments as needed. I don't feel like I am dieting, nor do I feel like anything is forbidden to me,. I am simply making great choices to meet the goals I have set for myself. I want to regain my strength and energy, lose the bloat and embrace the peace and quiet I need to finish healing.
What I appreciate now about the woman I am becoming is that the image in my head and the one in the mirror are no longer strangers- not quite identical twins but at least in the same family now.
My wish for you is to find a realistic and attainable image that fills you with pride and joy and to have the pleasure of becoming her.
All my best,
