Fighting Some Self-loathing...

By Nina David

It’s time to be a little more positive about myself.  The self-loathing thing is getting a little old and, to be honest, quite tiresome.

…I felt fat today.

I sat around moping and thinking about it a lot. How only 1 pair of jeans fit me now - my “fat pants” that have now become my “every day” wear.  How every bite of food leaves me feeling guilty.  How I don’t just have a muffin top, but cinnamon rolls, and a sticky bun too.

I know this sounds ridiculous, but the time I spend thinking about these things is even more ridiculous.  Let’s be honest - it’s a real problem.

…I’m done.

No more negativity.

It might sound lame, but I’m determined to become my favorite.  It really can’t be more lame then counting my rolls, right?

So here’s to looking in the mirror and liking what I see…you know what, screw the mirror.

Here’s to accepting myself, unconditionally, right now.
