Very Interesting article on weight loss surgery and body image

I think what SparkPeople does is give us the tools to become both physically and emotionally healthy at the same time. As I shed my pounds, I shed the mental and emotional abuse that led me down the path of emotional eating. Every workout, every time I ate salad rather than mac and cheese, or a sandwich rather than a bag of Oreos, I was making a conscience choice to take care of myself. Ny choice to become healthy was not selfish, was not because of what someone else did, or because a friend had suddenly become skinnier than me, no matter what my ex-husband's voice in my head said. I choose to be healthy because I am not worthless. Quite the opposite. I am full of worth. I am creative, funny and loving, as well as being strong and sexy.
What do y'all think?
