My Inner Voice has Issues.

You know what I'm talking about. You put those jeans on and look in the mirror. As you begin to do your little ballerina turn that voice in your head says "Holy crap look at that huge butt!" Quickly you run to the nearest warm body and ask "Does this make my butt look big?" It's the damn voice. The same voice that when you are feeling really good about the way you have been eating, says to you "You really need some chocolate cake, it won't hurt you, reallllly!!"  What the hell is up with that? The voice?

Well, today as I was getting my girl ready for school, I was thinking to myself, now that TOM is gone, wonder if I lost more weight?  Then the inner voice suddenly said "yeah right fat ass".. What? Who is in my head???  (You laugh, but you know that little bastard in your head says some crap to you too) I ran to the scale in sheer determination to defy THE voice and ta-da, -2 more pounds. Take that you faceless jerk. I mean seriously, this voice is always in my head and always throwing out some kind of negative, unwanted remarks. So....I have come up with a plan.

From now on, everytime the inner punk starts spewing negative crazy crap at me, I am going to yell something positive back at it. I do not care if people stare at me, begin to whisper about the crazy woman or even point at me. Enough is enough and I am taking my mind back!  And you can't stop me Mr. Voice!  Did I mention I am now down a total of 9 pounds? I rock!

  1. wooohoooo on the add'l 2 lbs. awesome!

    You know, we do talk to ourselves horribly. I'm not sure how it starts, or why it starts, but we do it. Maybe we were/are used to the teasing growing up so then we hurry and do it before others do it to us? Oh I don't know. I do know it's hard to un-learn it. We have to be positive each day and know that what we are doing for ourselves and our families is important and we're worth it.

  2. Gotta love that inner voice! If it was half as helpful is it was negative we'd all be supermodels! :) Just remind it to keep it's mouth shut if it has nothing good to say.

    BTW, thanks for following my blog.
