You may be here on my site because you saw my episode on TLC’s show My 600 Pound Life. I love that you are here for whatever the reason is. Whether you saw the show, or if you are here to be negative or positive, or if you just stumbled here by accident. Something that I have realized over the last week since my episode aired is that it is really easy to judge others. I am guilty of this too, don’t get me wrong. I just now have a new understanding of how wrong it is now.

Today’s journal prompt is all about self-discovery. There is a lot we can learn from some self-discovery. If you are here to post something negative about me based on my episode then you need this prompt. Never point a finger at anyone else, it’s not a good look.
Let’s start by making a list of everything you struggle with. Put everything on this list. What do you have trouble with? What do you fear? What do you think others are saying about you? If you could change anything what would it be? Put it all in your journal. The good, the bad, and the ugly.
“True self-discovery starts where your comfort zone ends.” -Adam Braun
Now think about your struggles and develop a plan of action. This is a great activity if you need help making your goals. These struggles are a great place to create some goals. For example, I am struggling with my weight (obviously) so I have created lots of goals to help me change this. Use our SMART goals printable to create some goals while you do this.
Start this week by making one small step towards making a change. It doesn’t have to be a huge change. It could just be saying a positive affirmation in the morning. Just taking one step goes a long way to helping you achieve your goals.
When you find yourself judging others return to this page in your journal and choose something to work on for yourself. Spend your energy becoming a better version of yourself not tearing down others. Consider all the negatives you tell yourself. Now think about that person you are judging. They probably already tell themselves the thing you are judging them on and worse. There is no need for them to hear it again. As Ellen would say, be kind to one another. It goes a long way in the world.
Let me know in the comments what your action step was this week?
