In the last few weeks, I have reading Food: The Good Girl's Drug by Sunny Sea Gold. I really like this book. If you are struggling with stress or emotional eating, I would recommend it. I found I am not alone in this struggle and it helped me realize I need to get some real, solid help. I can no longer act like this isn't an issue. It is.
My body image needs help. In the last 5 years, I have been a wide array of sizes - 26, 16, 10 and now 12/14. Each size I remember hating my body. Literally, hating it. I am a beautiful woman, inside and out, and there is no reason to hate my body. Sure, I have faults but what about the rest of me.
I have decided it is time to accept me as is and love me. I am a very loving person so why do I give out my love to everyone but me, the one person in my life that needs it most. So, I am going to try to accept and love me.
If you, too, are struggling with body image, I encourage you check out the following links.
The first link is with Whitney Thompson, a plus-size model. Love that she looks like just you or me.
The second link is about the real life Barbie. Would you want to be this way? I know I wouldn't. I think I will just learn to love my body.
