So many people today evaluate who they are by what they see in the mirror or in another person. Is the mirror really telling us the whole story? Does the person you are relating to today really know the true you?
How many times do we read about discrimination? Most people abhor discrimination, yet the same people often discrimination not on the basis of race, sex or religion but on weight. A person goes for an interview and doesn’t get the job because they are seen as unreliable or unable to display self control. They are seen to have no self control regarding food so they can’t possibly have any self control in terms of working.
But the worst offender about discrimination is us. We look in the mirror and what do we see? We can listen to other people or ourselves to hear what we are thinking.
🙁 I am fat.
🙁 I am ugly.
🙁 I have put on so much weight.
We are so negative and hard on ourselves when all we see if failure. But today is the end of this negative thinking.
You might be overweight by just a few pounds. You might be thinking, “I can’t tell you how many pounds I am overweight because you would be so disgusted with me.” Or you might be the person who is underweight, yet still have a problem with seeing the real you.
There are no right or wrong answers because we are no longer going to view people by what they weigh but who they are. If you judge yourself by what you weigh then it is likely you do the same to another person.
1. What weight are you? Nobody is looking except you so be honest with yourself here.
2. What weight should you be? Again not I want to lose 100 lbs but what weight should you be for your height and frame.
3. What do you today see in the mirror? Again be honest with yourself because nobody else is reading your journal.
4. What one thing can you do today to change the way you see yourself?
