Learning to love my body--now
Tuesday, July 02, 2013
I went to a b-day party a couple of weeks ago and recently I saw a few pictures from the party. Despite losing over 70 lbs. so far, a few of the angles were, as you might say, less than flattering.
My first inclination was to critique my bumps and bulges and feel defeated, but I'm not going to do that this time. I am going to be happy with my body, not when I get to my goal, but now and all the way down to where I finally end up. I am going to celebrate my progress and not berate myself for not having the body I want to have.
I say in my bio that 6-pack abs are not in my future and I will probably always bear the consequences of being well over 100 lbs. overweight. But I will take that any day compared to the way that I was--the tiredness, the pain, the lack of hope, the despair.
I will accept. I will be happy. I will rejoice....right here, right now!
