I never realised I was striving for perfection until I gave it some serious thought.  Thinking is what I've been doing a lot of lately.  I've been thinking about what I need to do to achieve my goals.  I've always focused on diet but I'm realising diet is not the answer.  It goes so much deeper.  I have been everything from too skinny to too fat and I've never been satisfied.  It's only in hindsight I can really accept that I was thin and beautiful.  I always felt not good enough.

I have been hiding behind perfection.  If I am the perfect mother, the perfect hostess, the perfect housewife, the perfect friend then it won't matter that I'm fat.  The thing is it doesn't matter - not to anyone else - they love me anyway.  I'm just not sure if I love me.

I don't know how to fix it, I don't have it all figured out but the thinking stage is good - really good.  No-one can do it for me.  No-one has the answers except me - I just have to find them.
