I really don't know what being beautiful feels like. I have been over weight all most all my life. I was born with a red birthmark on part of my face. So beautiful to see is not me. I do know what pretty from within means and that I do feel many times. Friends tell me they see me and my face and size don't matter. We share good times together. I'm divoeced and mom to 6 children who have blessed me with 16 grand and 12 great grandchildren. When I feel needed and loved I feel pretty. My little 4-legged friend, Abby, sits with me. She listens to me, offers no advise, only offers her love. I like to sew, do crafts, wish I could walk now that it is fall, and I guess the best way to say I feel pretty is when I'm happy doing something I like with someone I love.

I feel the most beautiful when I am painting. I think it's because I'm letting my personality show through more than usual and people see me for who I am and what I can create instead of what I look like.

I want to lose 55 pounds, and I'm going to lose 55 pounds.

Hmmm... I feel beautiful when... I've allowed myself to be calm (take some slow, deep breaths), shower etc., dress in some clothes that actually fit, and take some time to say something nice to myself, Works best when I know I've eaten healthy and/or exercised.

What makes me feel beautiful is know that God loves me no matter how I look. He looks on the inside, not the outside. I am divorced, and live with my 3 cats. When I am feeling down or a little depressed, my cats cling to me and they know something is just not right. That's again when I feel loved and beautiful. I feel beautiful on the inside and that for me is what matters the most. My few close friends have also commented that I look good since losing 27 lbs. I think when I love life itself, I feel beautiful as well.
Have a great weekend, my Sparkfriends.

When someone gives you a genuine, not hitting on you compliment. For instance, one of my managers at work is a really polite older guy, married and respectable. One day I rushed past him definitely not looking my best and he said "You really are beautiful." Out of the blue, it made my day cos I know he wasn't just hitting on me!

I feel beautiful when I spend some time on myself. I LIKE getting dressed in something that looks nice, and doing a little make-up. I don't HAVE to do that--but it gives me a lift. I do feel beautiful when I catch a glance in a mirror and like what I see! But I have lost 30+ pounds and can finally SEE the difference in me.

For me I always feel beautiful when I am my alter-ego Mrs. Claus either at Christmas time or other times in the year when we are called on--BUT I am well aware that is because I am in costume and not myself. For the everyday me--it's when I can do something for someone else or I can make someone else smile. emoticon

Tough question, because I don't know that I have felt that in years. So in that respect, it's a great question . . . because I obviously need to work on my negativity toward myself!

Yowzers! Thanks for the thought provoking question.

When I look my worst and know it and hubby comes up to me with a loving gesture, either a kiss, a shoulder rub, or hand holding, or all three, or however he comes showing affection towards me. It goes to show he loves the real beauty in me and it makes me feel like the beauty that I am.:)

What is a plateau, anyway?
When you are not seeing results in weight lost, inches dropped, or improved fitness for 4-6 weeks, you have probably hit a plateau.

What makes me feel beautiful?

The love from God always.
And sometimes when my husband looks me in eye and we lock stares-every once in awhile without him even saying a word I can see his true and deep love for me and I feel beautiful. I don't even think about what I'm wearing, or if I have make up on or what size I am. emoticon

What about you? Could be a favorite outfit, your beloved pet, getting a massage or going to the salon...
