Gonna be a HEALTHY B-Nana

As a wife, mother of 4 , and grandma of 6 , I declare I WILL get rid of my sedentary ways and be able to hike the Napali Trail without feeling like I'm gonna die. Improving my iron levels and bone density are top priorities.

Last year went by SO fast. Remodeled our bathroom after finding a leak in the shower liner and then termite damage in the walls. It looks great now, but it was a long process. Friends invited me to go with them to Puerto Rico for their high school reunion. That was a BLAST. Learned to make hypertufa planters. Discovered how well accupuncture can help with medical problems - I'm a believer. Visited family in ID. Attended my first ever political rally. Fell and hurt my wrist. But still managed to win 1st place in an apple pie baking contest.

2011 Traveled to Oahu, Hawaii. Hiked Diamondhead, went SKYDIVING. Cruises. Was gone somewhere every single month. What a crazy year. I loved it.

"STOP Hating yourself for everything you aren't.
START Loving yourself for everything you ARE. "

I would but there's some things that are logically off about this concept. Especially in regards to pursuing weight loss and changing the natural state/shape of ones body. In which the idea of loving yourself as you look now and still wanting to change it are two concepts that cannot coexist with one another. Either you can love and accept yourself now, or you can change what you do not like. I cannot see how you can love yourself as is but still want to change what you look like.

There are things that I like about myself. That I can draw for one. But even then, I don't strive to keep my art the same. I don't always like how I draw. So I try to get better. I don't change things because I like how they are. I change them because I don't like it (or at least I try to change them).

I dunno...body positive messages are wonderful. I just don't completely feel they work in weight loss spaces...
