i think throughout my life and even now that's some of my issue. my expectation for what i would like to see in the mirror is unrealistic.
sure, as women, we have a thing with body image. i'm not sure there are many women out there that aren't extra critical of themselves...even the most perfect looking people see things about themselves that they don't like.
we have crazy expectations throughout life: We grow up thinking that we're going to have tons of money. We get married expecting "The Notebook".
We have kids expecting our houses to stay cleaned.
as far as getting healthy is concerned, i think that this is a major cause of stress and ultimately failure. "i'm going to work out and eat healthy so that i can look like Heidi Klum!" guess what? ain't.going.to.happen.
take a good look at yourself in the mirror. point out the things that you like. start to accept your body the way that it is. We all have imperfections. Learn to love it- it's a part of who you are.
maybe getting healthy won't make you look like Heidi Klum...but it will make you look like the best version of you. :)
