How has the week been for you? Whatever the week has been like for you, hopefully you are able to appreciate or recognize some Little Victory in your journey to get saner about food and body stuff. (If you are new to this whole “Little Victories” idea, check out some of our past weeks.)
The “Little Victories” Fridays are quickly becoming some of my favorites posts to write, because of all the incredible things you share. (This week especially, I’m feeling a lot of HealthyGirl.org love all around!)
I’ll start us off: This week I had kind of a big argument with a close friend, something that had been building up for a while. I’m someone that rarely gets in real arguments or fights, and in the off chance that I do, I often back down and let it slide because I am not the best with confrontation. This time, however, I knew it was important for me (and my friendship) to have a real conversation and SPEAK UP! It felt particularly good because in the past, I might have avoided this, and it would have most likely lead to me bingeing or emotionally eating to get rid of all the uncomfortable feelings that come along with this. Also, knowing that I didn’t honor and respect myself by saying what I needed to say would have fueled the fire and perhaps lead to more self-sabotage.
Even though it was initially difficult for me to have the important conversation, it was totally what needed to happen and I felt really positive about it afterward. My Little Victory that was kind of like a preemptive strike against feeling out of touch with myself and my food and body.
Alright, time for yours…What were some of your “Little Victories” this week? You know you had some! —Morgan
