Today's topic: "What do you like most about your body? Has what you like most about your changed as you've progressed towards your goals?"
Hands down, what I like most about my body is that I live here! That it has forgiven me for years of abuse with food. That it responded with gratitude every time I treated it well. That I can *do* what I need to do to function in life... freely and much more easily than at times in the past when I was carting around a good deal more poundage.
Has what I like most changed? Not really. Gratitude for the miracle of life was there before I started, and it's still at the top of my list.
Imagine: this body protected and sheltered then kicked out a functioning infant, even while overweight! What's not to love about a miracle like that? This body houses my mind, that I'm so invested in. My body and yours are really pretty incredible. They are worth cherishing and taking care of.
It's not about how it looks. It's all about how it WORKS!
LIFE is good. Spark on!
