One Mom’s Journey from Fat to Skinny to Confident

QUOTES

Weekend Quote: Live Your Life Like

1 Comments 888 views

Those be my boys. :) Not that you didn’t know if you’ve read my blog for more than a minute. I love my kids and it’s kind of hard not to show it. They are a part of everything I do.

Everything changed once I became a mom. It was the experience of pregnancy, child birth, and nursing that made me realized how unhealthy and cruel I was treating myself and my body. Diet after diet. Starving. Binging. Popping pills. All in the name of getting skinny. For what? For who?

I know not everyone who is reading is a parent, but I think this quote is too good not to share.

"Live your life in the manner that you would like your kids to live theirs." -Michael Levine

When I first read it I immediately thought about how I eat and how I want my kids to eat. I can’t help it. I’m wired to think about food, but then I started realizing how much more this quote encompasses.

I want my boys to be…

healthy,
happy,
kind,
confident,
strong,
active,
curious,
patient,
determined,
friendly,
fit,
optimistic,
independent,
sympathetic,
practical,
resourceful,
reliable,
honest,
brave,
sincere,
loved.

I can take care of that last one, but the rest I guess I’m gonna have to teach by example, huh?

I’d love to hear your story or thoughts on mine.

However, to prevent the massive amounts of spam I was receiving I have turned off comments on any post older than 5 days old. If you'd like to leave me a note regarding this post or anything really try me on twitter (@RoniNoone,) my Facebook page, or even IG (@RoniNoone) I'm so sorry for the inconvenience. I never thought I'd have to do this but it's gotten way out of hand and comment management has become simply too time consuming to manage.
