How do you solve a problem like low self-esteem
I was at dinner tonight. Feeling very unglamorous even though I put on red lipstick and a nice top and my new black trousers and some heels. I knew I had eaten too much even though we were going out for indian food in the evening. I had been snacking because I’m bored and fed up at work. Its actually soul-destroying. Confidence and self-esteem destroying.
I was thinking about how I’ve been walking/running 3 times a week (Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays) for 2 weeks and although I missed tonight’s run due to dinner, I intend to make up for it by doing it tomorrow night and Wednesday night and also will be horseriding on Thursday evening. But I still feel fat and horrible. Ugly. Unattractive. Unuseful. Unproductive. Just a whole lot of “un”.
So I was thinking to myself what (other than weight watchers) can I do. Something fresh. A new diet that I haven’t tried before. Then I thought about it some more and realised that maybe the problem isn’t my diet (as such). Maybe its because I’m fed up. I eat because I’m trying to make up for emotional issues. Maybe I need to do somethign about that. I’m not sure what, so if you have any tips, I’d be happy to hear them. I’m not sure a haircut or having my nails done is going to cut it. I know I need to find a new job…. Maybe I should start there, but in the meantime, what can I do to boost myself?
