Today I want to share something that happened to me and how it can help you find a man who will love and accept you for who you are.
On January first I decided that I wanted to get in better shape. The Big Five-O is coming around the corner and one of my goals is to be in the best shape of my life when that day occurs.
So in January I decided to kick things into gear and by mid-march I was at a weight I hadn’t seen in over 20 years.
I was feeling really good about myself. My energy was thru the roof, I really liked what I saw in the mirror and everyone was complimenting me on how good I looked (I’ll admit my ego was loving it!)
But then May came and it all started to go downhill
It started first on my birthday when Natalie got me a birthday cake made of cupcakes by Mr. Cupcake (if you’re in north jersey find a Mr Cupcakes near you and GO!)
And from the moment I ate that first cupcake it was all downhill.
The next two months were filled with birthday’s, holidays, parties and BBQ’s and because Natalie & I both come from Italian families most of these events revolve around…FOOD.
So, guess what?
All that hard work I had put in since the beginning of the year went down the toilet. This morning went I finally had the balls to get back on the scale ( I had been avoiding it b/c I knew I wasn’t going to like what I was going to see) I got really pissed…for about 10 seconds
This is not the first time I’ve gone thru this cycle. In fact it’s happened a lot in my life. I’ve struggled with my weight since I was a young boy.
Instead of beating myself up (like I used to ) I simply decided to get back on the wagon. So, first thing this morning I went fro a 45 min bike ride.
I’m at the point in my life where I’m done beating myself up because I’ve learned that it really doesn’t do any good.
I’ve learned that in order to have inner peace it’s important that you learn to love and accept yourself .
It is so much easier to find a man who will love you for you when you learn to love yourself..even when you suck!
There’s this myth out there that you have to be perfect and be a size zero before a guy will love you and want to be with you.
And it’s bullsh*t!
Yes, that may be true for the “boys” but those guys make horrible boyfriends and husbands.
The RIGHT guy will love you for who you are, the good, the bad and the imperfect. Because your imperfections are what make you unique.
And any guy who won’t love and accept you for who you are simply isn’t the right guy for you and isn’t’ worthy of your love.
I can promise you that the more you are able to love and accept yourself, the easier it will be to find that guy who will love you because one of the things that is most attractive to a man is a woman who knows who she is and who isn’t afraid of being vulnerable.
Is there a part of you that you have trouble loving and accepting. Do you think you have to be or do something different before a guy will love you?
