Confidence

It's funny.. I'm in such a happy, positive place right now. I'm getting back to working out... am fully committed to WW again.

I was walking down to the UPS dock in our building and passed a couple guys... and what did I do?.. The ' i-have-no-self-confidence-because-i-am-overweight-so-i-will-avert-my-eyes/lower-my-head-and-walk-past-you"

I so can't wait for the day when I have confidence and can just keep my head up and smile..say hello..

I sometimes will keep my head up and give a smile and hi.. but it feels so awkward and fake to me.. like I don't even believe myself.. Maybe it's just my personality.. maybe I am an introvert.. but I would like feeling good about myself (i.e -losing weight).. would help me with my personality as well.. I know that there is an outgoing person inside..sometimes, around certain people that im comfortlable with, it comes out.. so.. While it's sad that I cant 'bring it' now because I'm letting my weight get to me.. I know that I am working on it..

"Fake it, til you make it, girlie!" Thats my advice! Confidence will come, but in the mean time "fake it". I know that sounds stupid, but its so true!

Think of it this way, when you look up and smile at someone else (especailly the opposite sex), you are giving THEM a condifence boost too! So why not?!?! Spread the wealth! Hold you head high, and smile away! =)
