Looking at a Better Me. // Brittany T.

I have been debating doing a guest post on here for a while and finally sat down to write out what I wanted to share…

So the other day I was in Kickboxing class and I was staring at the blonde hottie that seriously looks like she never has to watch what she eats because she is so dang perfect! I was sitting there all sad for myself because “I will never be that tall and sexy.” When it hit me…Why the hell am I always comparing myself to others?

I mean, yeah there will always be those girls who have a better body or someone who is prettier…that’s just how life is! But why am I comparing myself to someone who has a completely different body type than me and as much as I hate to give her any credit (lol) I am sure she works hard for the body she has. I know I have! And instead of comparing myself to her, maybe I should compare myself to the person I used to be…at 190 pounds and only 5’3”.   I was overweight, unhealthy and extremely unhappy with myself.  Now, I am at a happy 155, still trying to lose 15lbs and I feel so much sexier and healthier now. My husband has seen this change in me and my family members have too.  I love when they tell me how “skinny” I am looking now-a-days and how much happier I am now that I have committed myself to a healthy lifestyle.

I know we all compare ourselves to other women, it is just something that we do. And it is hard not to with the super models and movie stars out there that are skinny and drop dead gorgeous but maybe instead we should be comparing ourselves to the person we were yesterday…or months ago or even a year ago!  I am making a decision to stop myself when confronted with that tall, beautiful, perfect blondie and think of how far I have come! How freaking hot I am! I mean not to toot my own horn but look at the progress lol….

And maybe you are just starting your weight loss journey and are saying “I don’t have an old me to compare myself to” but think of it this way every day you are getting a step closer to being able to look back at the old you and compare yourself to the you that you will be one day…how awesome is that feeling going to be?

I know it’s going to be hard but life is too short to be anyone but the healthiest, happiest me I can be and I am so glad this journey is changing me not only on the outside but on the inside too!
