I was reading a blog today from Kipp over at If you Nibble it, Scribble it about our ability to forgive ourselves when it comes to weight loss or our lack of it.  Kipp talked very openly about how hard it is to forgive ourselves when we aren't doing exactly what we need to loose our weight.  How it is easier to forgive our worst enemies but to forgive ourselves for not doing something like going to the gym is nearly impossible.  For me, one bad day....one missed scheduled gym appointment means I get so mad at myself that I often allow that negative moment to impact the days ahead.  I am an all or nothing girl.  So I often feel that if I am being bad...then why not eat what I want, why not go to the gym.   This is thinking that I need to change.  I want to be able to forgive those moments that I feel I am being bad...and just realize it isn't good or bad...it is life.  There are times when I will eat more and eat really decadent things.  There are times where there will not be time to work out...that is ok that is life.  I need to start realizing that I need to forgive myself and learn to live my life in a healthy way.  

So thank you Kipp for putting into words what I have been feeling for a long time.  Tomorrow is my weigh in.  Not hoping for much since exercising hasn't been ideal this week.  We shall see...

    Isn't it something that we so easily forgive others, and are crazy hard on ourselves?
