BODY IMAGE... I’ve always been a super skinny pale kid. Growing up I was super self conscious about my skinny-ness and always heard jokes and comments from people at school and playing hockey. Alcoholism swelled me up and I absolutely despised who I saw in the mirror each day. In recovery I found exercise and a healthier diet but honestly it’s still a struggle sometimes. One of my diabetic meds means weight loss so I’m always trying to put on muscle. Honestly though, it’s a mental game. It’s loving my vessel. And today after my morning workout I’m feeling beautiful. My go to affirmation is “I am beautiful”.
