Made me cry... a lot.

WOW, what a wonderful video.  It is so very true that we are overwhelmingly critical of ourselves!

Comment by GIna Greene on April 18, 2013 at 11:08am

I saw this video a few days ago and it blew my mind. So sad at how we perceive ourselves which tends to be quite different than what others see. Where does that start? Comparison? Marketing (i.e..."you have ____________ and you shouldn't, so use our product so you don't...")? Small comments from others that we take to define ourselves. I wish we could see ourselves as others see us.

The hardest 'friend' I've ever had to learn to appreciate has been my own mirror. I have looked into a mirror and tried to talk to the person who is there and as if that person was someone I wanted to have as my best friend too. Its a very difficult and challenging practice, and one that ought not be all that tough, but oh my it IS. Lots of ingrained NON self acceptance in our lives.

I also was a part of an exercise at another group which was interesting and illuminating. Those members who wanted to participate posted pictures of themselves and then other members could post remarks about how they 'viewed' that picture. The picture poster always zeroed in on negatives that the others never noticed and the remarks where generally positive too.

"I feel similarly to Eeza. The Fitbit can be a helpful tool, or it can be a detrimental tool to your IE walk. It depends on your attitude... Similarly, take the Scale for example. In my dieting days and early IE days, if I weighed myself, I would…"

First week musings

So it's been about a week since I decided to pick the IE book up and start reading it a second time. This time very slowly. Literally like a page a day LOL.  I'm letting everything sink in and jumping around to different sections if I read something in a discussion post that catches my eye refers to a certain section.I feel so ready. Interestingly, unlike the beginning of most diets this readiness comes with some anxiety and almost this feeling of dread. Dread of having to try and understand…See More
