You are not fat. You have fat.

It’s an amazing thing that when we feel overweight, that can blur our filter to everything else we see about ourselves. We no longer think we are pretty, intelligent, sexy, funny, smart, well groomed, a good mother, a good wife, a worthwhile person. Hmmmmmm!

So is it true that because you have some extra fat on your body, you have lost all the other qualities? Impossible! It’s simply your perception of yourself and if you ask others, often you will find they don’t care about your weight and they still see all the other qualities even if you don’t.

If you are feeling really down about your weight and size, ask 3 people you love and trust to write down a list of your qualities. I think you’ll be positively surprised to know that none of them see you in the destructive way you see yourself.
