The Curse of Comfort

I like the way I look. I feel comfortable in my skin.

This is a curse.

Sure, I could be a bit more toned, but I feel like my wanting to be more toned is insatiable- A feeling that will always be with me. But, I really like the shape of my body right now and the proportion.

One might think loving your body should be uncomplicated, but it is not. I have found that it makes it all too easy to maintain your current weight when you love your body. I think that what has been wrong with my attempts at weightloss for the past few months is that I see nothing wrong with my body.

That's great though! If you're comfortable in your own skin then maybe you don't need to lose more weight and can be happy with the way things are.

I kind of know what you mean. Even at my heaviest I never really had the bad self image that so many women struggle with. Looking back is a different story, but I think being comfortable can prevent us from moving forward. It is complicated but I think if we are healthy and happy, that is alright too.

However I still want to get to goal. Let's do it!

You really do have a great body, though! You have curves in all the right spots. Maybe now you can just focus on living healthy instead of losing weight?
