...which is crazy because I usually never take online quizzes! I mean why should I?
But for some reason I took this one...and for a woman who has struggled with her weight her whole life...this changed everything.
Let me backup a few steps…
I’m in my mid 40s now, and throughout my life I’ve just accepted my place as “okay looking”. I would look in the mirror and say the words “not bad”, because I felt I could always get by with my personality…
...even though when I looked in the mirror every night, I felt a twinge of shame. I even tried to avoid ever seeing myself naked or in my underwear. It was almost like I was hiding from the sight of my own body, at some point I felt embarrassed anytime I saw my reflection.
See, it wasn’t just the way I looked “maybe a little”, but it was the fact that I blamed myself for how I looked.
I thought it was my fault that I couldn’t shed the extra weight around my hips, thighs, and belly.
I knew it wasn’t genetics because my parents and siblings are all naturally lean...which meant I felt cheated for being chubby. I remember seeing people who had a complete body transformation, and I began to feel they were better than me.
On top of the shame I already felt...I would mentally beat myself up for being “too lazy” to work out or “not disciplined enough” to eat right.
Even though every single diet and workout plan FAILED to give me the results I wanted!
