Drea?!?!? What do you see? Ugh, I don't want to look at that. No, look! What do you see? *Sigh*.... Okay, I see stretch marks; I see markings from two pregnancies; I see those horrible scars from three surgeries... Look, what else do you see? Hhhmm, OMG! emoticon I SEE, I SEE definition of muscles forming. Oh my look at those little dents... Oh look at that it's not a keg any more.. Uh maybe a 4-pack? WOW!, where did that come from? emoticon

That came from you choosing to emoticon . That came from you CLAIMING NO DEFEAT emoticon .

Are you encouraged now?!?! YES, I AM! Keep focusing on your actions, RESULTS WILL TAKE PLACE.

    Good for you lady ...but those marks and stretch marks as you say from bearing kids and etc. Glory to God you are here and making changes. When God see us he does not see any marks or the like just his children. man looks on the outward appearance but God see the heart. Doing a praise dance with you!!!

    Looking Good! emoticon
You're right to focus on the good parts of "What Do You See?" and not the stretch marks and scars. We all have them, they're part of the story of our lives, the scars aren't the important part anyway, it's what's inside that counts most and you have a beautiful inside emoticon
