Unhappy with the person you see in the mirror?

If you’ve gained weight, you may not like certain aspects of who or what you’ve become. You may regret past mistakes or miscalculations. But when it comes to determining your self-worth, understand that who you are in this moment is merely a snapshot, a frozen glimpse. It’s tempting to evaluate ourselves by staring at our “snapshot” and declaring, “Look at me. I’m so fat! I’m so out of control. I’m such a loser.” And as tempted as you may be to feel sorry for yourself, recognize that life isn’t a snapshot, it’s a streaming video. Who you are in this moment will inevitably change—for better or worse—in the next. And this change isn’t determined by fate, circumstances, or faulty misperceptions—it’s determined by you!
