But anyways all of that to say, that after thinking about this, I realized - my son is me! I do the same damn thing. With weight loss, fashion, hair, hobbies ... I never come up with my own ideas. I always see what other people are doing and think, that's cool - I should try that. Lame Sauce!!
I look at all these blogs and it's like I am looking for someone's secret to weight loss that is going to be like a light bulb for me. Oh look, she lost 60 lbs eating nothing but fruit and vegetables, I can do that! Then begins the endless research and mountains of print outs of recipes using only fruits and vegetables. It really is a viscous cycle.
Same with hair and clothes. I see a picture and think man I want hair like that, print said picture, go to salon and get it done - only to get bored with it 2 weeks later and wish so badly I wouldn't have chopped about 7 inches off my hair because it looked cute on SOMEONE ELSE!
Maybe if I tried to just be ME and do what works for ME, this weight loss stuff wouldn't be so hard.
I am who I am - and that should be enough. I need to figure this stuff out on my own and be happy with me. Or else I will never win this weight loss battle.
I am a good wife -
I am an AMAZING mother -
I make BEAUTIFUL children! -
I am a 100% goofball -
|I get it from my daddy!|
|And my G-Ma =)|
This is me - and if i would just sit back and enjoy the ride and stop trying to jump on everyone else's "train" then maybe I would enjoy life just a little more.
Only YOU know what works best for YOU! It is fine to look to others for inspiration but in the end all that matters is that you are happy with yourself and you do what is right for you!
