Baby Guru Nutrition

 

Yesterday I went for coffee and The Chef (husband) took this pic of me. He showed me the pic on the phone, and I instantly saw the 10kg of baby weight I’m still carrying, the little double chin I have at certain angles, and the tired eyes. Literally as I was thinking these thoughts, the owner of the cafe came up to me and told me how beautiful I look, and how healthy I looked considering I only gave birth 8 months ago.

Here I was, thinking 8 months is forever and the weight should be gone already.

Here I was, thinking my eyes looked haggard and my arms looked chubby compared to how they used to look.

Here I was, thinking everyone else could see those things too.

I’m not sharing the story so that people might comment that I look nice. But I AM sharing it to show that those thoughts in our head are mostly thoughts and for every one of those thoughts we have, there is a person looking at us thinking how lovely we look, or that we have nice hair, or that our dress is gorgeous…

I think it’s natural to have these thoughts, but we need to recognise when we have them and be able to acknowledge them and then kick them up the a$$ and boot them out of our head. Because we don’t always have to dwell on our thoughts.

I’m also sharing this in the hope that today, you will give a stranger a compliment.

Because if you do, it might just give them the inspiration they need to turn their thinking around and it might just make their day! X

Weight loss takes longer than we want it to. It always does. Accept this, accept your body for what it is now, and you will put your mind in a place where it is more positive. If you are thinking positively, you are more likely to stick to your goals of eating better and exercising.

Take the time, be patient.
