A blog about a blog?

Wednesday, March 20, 2013

Read this article on Yahoo Shine entitled "What Losing 180 pounds really does to your body and your mind" (see link below)

I commented on it bc it is a topic near and dear to me. I love reading about the journeys of other people. I wish I could do more to support this yourng woman and I wish her well.

    LOL. I meant to share my comments on the blog, but couldn't find them bc so many others had commented. When you have been overweight, especially significantly overweight for a long time, it is part of your identity. I still think of myself as a "big girl." On the other hand, this young woman let so much of her life go by, believing that being thinner would magically change her life somehow. There have been many positive changes in my life since losing weight, but I am still the same great person I was before... If you didn't love yourself when you were heavy, becoming thinner isn't necessarily going to help unless the only thing you didn't like about yourself was your weight... We are all beautiful... sometimes we need help seeing it.
