A little about me

Sunday, May 12, 2013

Where oh where do I begin...... well let's just say that I don't always have a positive body image. I look in the mirror each morning and tell myself that I am beautiful just the way I am and that I really love my nose (after all I inherited it from my grandfather)...I guess you can say that I am not always comfortable living in my own skin. I believe that I have "thunder thighs" I also believe that my hair isn't exactly my best feature, I believe that my badunkadunk is way to big and even though it's actually getting some shape I still don't like it, I believe that I have "man hands", I believe my knees are one of my worst features as well...

I have slowly learned to love my "thunder thighs" thanks to them I'm able to move about freely and one day they'll bounce my children on them and my grand children.

I have learned to love my badunkadunk because it's mine and honestly it's getting sexier...

I have even learned to love my hair even though I have colored it for as long as I can remember and cut it in various styles it has stayed with me all this time and not once complained. well other than when it was going grey.

I am learning to love my knees because without them I'd never be able to kick, squat or do anything remotely fun..

I am even learning to love my "man hands" because with them I'm able to soothe the tears of my nieces and nephews..I'm even able to punch and block when I do my Combat workout.

I feel strong and sexy when I'm doing my workouts. I love being covered in sweat and knowing that it's because I have taken the time to do an amazing workout. I know that I can't avoid doing a workout because for me it's my time with myself..

And honestly FAILURE is not an option any more I can't afford to have surgery again (physically or emotionally) it just drains me in so many ways that I can't stand it. So that's a little about me... tell me more about you

    Thank you so much for sharing such personal information about you and your journey. Self acceptance is an important part of our spark journey. Over 50% of my problem is ME and what I think and see and that isn't necessarily what others see. No matter how much weight I lose, I will still always be the same size in my mind. It's a daily struggle.

    I am confident we CAN overcome this!
