Hi My Friends!
I hope you are doing very well.
So how do I feel about my body since last time we talked about it (I wrote a blogpost here)? Well, I can say that I feel good and it is not a temporary feeling; it is going to last.
When I mentioned in that blogpost that I regretted the fact that I did not enjoyed the look of my body the way it was before. Well now, I enjoy the curviness and the healthiness of it.
This body helped me to go through so much things that I am so proud. It gave me the energy to study and work at the same time. It did not get sick when it was not the time, and when it was, it did its very best to support me.
I don’t see my body as an “object” now, I see My Body as a Friend. And this Friend gives me everything I want, everything I need to accomplish my purposes, my dreams.
It took me some time for me to be able to say: “No diet anymore, I love my body.” It is not easy and I don’t want to pretend to have a magic formula which will give you immediate confidence in your body.
The main step is to get rid of people who make you feel bad in your body.
I have a friend who is amazing and her body is like a painting of Italian classic art. She has started to feel good in her skin when she get rid of people who did not see this beauty in her body and, in a vicious and weird way, blamed her for looking the way she is.
I did the same, I get rid of “friends”, boyfriend and relatives who blamed my body for looking the way it is. It was hard, but it helped a lot. In fact, it is not possible to work on your self-confidence, and as soon as you start to feel better someone shut all your effort down, and most of the time, only with a few words.
The next step is to look into the mirror and tell yourself: I am healthy, and there is only this that matter.
Back in the day, when I was seeing people in very bad shape and condition, I was thinking “oh my god, I complain about my weight while my body is healthy and it should be only that which matter”, but the day after I was again into my dark thought about my body. And one day, I just decided to stop, and to say outloud this sentence everyday “I am healthy, I love my Body”.
And more and more I was feeling that it was working.
However, the main event which opened my eyes was the day I “discovered” that I had cellulite (I wrote a blogpost on my feelings about that).
And to be completely honest with you I took the time (and the money) to get rid of it, and I promised myself that if I manage to get rid of it, I will never ever criticize my body anymore and I will feel good in it, whatever my weight will be.
So I took an appointment at my beauty institute for massage and it did work. I have been to the House of Beauty, after six sessions which hurted like hell, It disappeared.
And guess what, during these holidays: I eat, drink, laugh, photograph and love.
And now that I’ve get rid of this cellulite, I am telling you my friends: I just enjoy my body and all the things it gave me.
Enjoy your body my Friends.
