Super Angie...doubts need to flee

Success comes from knowing that you did your best to become the best that you are capable of becoming.” -John Wooden.

One moment, I'm full of confidence. I am so excited about my goals and aspirations. But then the next moment, I'm full of self doubt.

When I'm running on the treadmill, I look at myself in the mirror. I see how far I've come and how different my body looks. I'm happy and pleased, but then suddenly the doubts come into my mind. Thoughts like: you are such a failure that those pants that fit in January no longer fit! and There is NO WAY you will ever lose that belly!

Good Angie.
Bad Angie.
Super Angie.

Another thought: you will never be a beautiful skater, so why bother?

You already are a beautiful skater by my definition! Don't be too hard on yourself:)

I feel your pain. Why do we as women do this to ourselves? One day I'm feeling good about my results and then I go somewhere and see a really fit and hot looking 'momma' and I look down at my muffin top and just hate myself. It can be so discouraging. Girl, you have turned yourself into a runner! A runner! That in my book is AMAZING. I keep trying to turn myself into one, but I HATE IT! I can only 'run' on an elliptical and I hate that about me. Why can't I be like so many of my neighbors and enjoy running and even do marathons? Sorry I didn't mean for this to be a downer. LOL I meant to cheer you up, boy I'm lousy at that huh?! LOL

If you feel good, it doesn't matter how you look. Each body is different. Yours is beautiful!
