Hi folks. So it's been a while since I posted anything on here,, I'll try to post something each weekend. In the mean time with the focus this year being about body image I found an article today about Lucy Fallon otherwise known as Beth any Platt from Coronation Street. Recently she has struggled with negative thoughts about her body and comparing herself and her body to other folks posting on social media.
I have done this plenty of times myself. With my own continuing battle with my weight (although I'm actually quite Fit apart from this) I find myself looking at images of other guys who are toned and muscled and often left feeling pretty bad about myself. It's a constant battle to keep focused on my own journey, to the progress I'm making and to be kind to myself and remind myself that these Fit guys I compare myself to have possibly doing fitness training for decades or have far more time than I do. Is this something you have ever found yourself doing? Have you looked at someone else and their life and compared it to yours? How has that made you feel? How do you avoid the comparison trap?
