I have struggled with weight my entire life and I am at a place I am not thrilled about. Ive come to realize that diets do not work..they never will. But discovering why you got to the place you are now does. The weight is a symptom, and a layer of protection. I thought about doing a journal swap on here of writing down calories, tips, daily exercise, for big girls. But I think I need to go much deeper that this. So to all you big girls out there...this is for you. You will buy a journal (no smaller than 5x7. I have listed the following journal prompts for you to use. I hope everyone finds this somewhat healing.
Anyone can join with a well filled out profile. Please make sure to not just answer the prompts but make it a beautiful safe haven for your partner to come too in her time of need so she can read your journal and know they are not alone. Add quotes, stories,draw, etc.
If you have any questions, please let me know.
And remember ladies, big or small, you deserve nothing less than the best!
Use the following journal prompts
1) If being heavy is a symptom of something else that went wrong in your life, what do you think it may have been? What do you think made you start putting on the pounds? Talk about the journey of weight gain.
2) How has weight affected your relationships with a significant other?
3) Have you ever actually accepted yourself at any point in life? And if so, what happened that set you back?
4) What attempts have you made to lose weight? Best ones? Worse ones?
5) Did anyone from childhood belittle you?
6) First memory ever?
7) Do you have any health issues because of the weight?
8) Does your family support you?
9) Who makes your weight loss journey difficult? Anyone in your life that you feel enjoys seeing you fail? And if so, who?
10) Write a letter to your younger self. Try to pick an age right before life got really hard for you as a kid. Knowing what you know now about what that child will go through, write them a letter and tell them how much you love them and what you want them to know to help them get through it.
11) Got pictures? Show us pictures of you as a child and now? What do you think about the pictures? Are you loving or hateful about what you see?
12) Write down 20 positive affirmations about your life and who you are!
13) Write a letter to your future you, promising to love yourself for whatever is to come.
14) Close with any entry you like. But I would like you to put something in there about if you learned a lot about yourself through this journal. Also state any closing thoughts you have.
