My First Blog Entry

Monday, October 22, 2012

For my first blog entry, I would like to explain the title of my Spark Page. I entitled it learning to love because I believe that when we get so down on ourselves about the weight we have either been holding on to or gaining or both, we forget that there is so much we can be thankful for and really should embrace and learn to love. I have always had a hard time loving who I am because I didn't think that I was as beautiful or as thin as my sisters. They never struggled with weight, and I felt that I wasn't loved as much as they were because I did have this struggle. Family members and school mates all reminded me almost on a daily basis that I had a weight problem. The truth is I measured my worth by them. I never gave myself enough credit though. I am smart, caring, and creative, and these are great attributes to love. I am learning to love myself, and though most days it is not that easy, I have faith that being here at SP will give me the tools to do that.

    Welcome to spark!! And great job on your first blog. I think a lot of us struggle with this issue in one way or another. Even when we hit our "goal" it is hard to see it and still love ourselves!! Great beginning though!!! Can't wait to watch your journey!!

    You know what? As a life-long "big girl," I have just stayed comfortable in my own skin, and in part it stemmed from a father who was overweight himself but exuded such confidence and made friends and was remembered wherever he would go. I know it's not healthy to be overweight, but in the meantime, in my journey to being healthier, I am going to love myself! You can do it!!! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    you are worth more than you give yourself credit. I hope you continue to progress in your journey to accept yourself. It's tough, but it's worth it!
