How many of you have self-esteem issues? Have you found that losing weight and getting healthier has improved your sense of self-worth? I'm currently evaluating whether or not that process is happening with me.
I know I feel less ashamed of my appearance. But at this point, I can't really say that my inner-workings have been drastically transformed. I'm still me inside my head, after all.
I never expected that finding some measure of success in my LC diet would be a panacea for all life's ills. The truth is, I guess I was hoping for more. But deep inside I think I knew that a whole other layer of work would be needed if I'm truly going to change my life for the better.
I can say this with certainty: I needed to improve my health as part of any foundation for change. I was a walking ER candidate waiting for my number to be called. The changes I've made in my diet and lifestyle will hopefully buy me enough time to try to change the truly important things that can't be seen in a mirror. Wish me luck, I'll need it.
