What an awesome resolution!!! Your blog speaks for many of us and we feel that this journey is something we must do for ourselves and no one else. When we come to this realization that what we are doing is for a healthy lifestyle we can do this one step at a time. Hang in there. emoticon

It's the rythymn that makes the beauty smile,
It's the rythymn that makes all time worthwhile.
In the mirror what you see is more than cell and meat and bone and smell,
It's the rythymn that undulates the soul and smiles and peaks out from within.
It's the rythymn that bounces and shines out hope and lets us see you dancing on shards and soft shiney pieces of refracted light.
When we look into your soul, we see ourselves reflected there and soft smiley eyes that don't weigh and ounce are twinkling in delight.
It's the rythymn that makes us hope with you and dance with you and even have a little pillow fight in celebration.
Masses roll away in mounds of flesh and pounds of joy as everyday the passage of time is.......
I'm doing this for me.

Thank you for your very inspiring message. I wish you every success. And your words will stay with me in my own battle.

Good for you!! I am going to be thinking of the line "I am not my own little garbage can" when I want to eat or drink junk. We are both better than a garbage can and deserve to treat ourselves and be treated better. Thanks for sharing.

Wow... you are in a good place. It made me so sad to think of you binging and purging. You are beautiful... I hope that you will realize that soon.
Good luck on your journey. You can do this.

I'm with you. Let's do this together. I'm going to make a conscious effort to refrain from snacking on unhealthy food. I'm going to try and drink a glass of water whenever I'm hungry for junk food. That's supposed to help. I'm going to try it. thanks for your inspiration.

I can totally relate to what you are saying. Doing it for ourselves and our Health is number one. I have also been thinking the same way about not treating my body like a garbage can. Thanks for your post.

Awesome! It should the only reason why your doing this!
Your one step closer than most who are doing it for other reasons. We all should want to be the best possible health that we can be.

I can't wait to read that you've made some of your goals!

Woohoo -- great post! By doing this for you and your reasons to be healthy, you now might be motivating other people here to do the same :).


3/31/11 7:40 P

I'm doing this for me. Not for those who called me too fat to be pretty.
Not for the snooty vendors who look down on me when I try dresses.
Not for those who say "too bad, she has a pretty face".
Not to make my parents happy.
Not to fit in to a stereotypical idea of beauty.

I'm doing this to get healthy.
To show myself that I can.
To be a strong woman: I can be athletic. I can be beautiful.
I want to feel good in my own skin.
I want to find MYSELF beautiful.
I want to look in my mirror and smile.

I don't want to think "what if I felt good in my skin ..." anymore.
I don't want to look at a beautiful dress and think "too bad..."
I don't want to think of myself in disgust. My body and I deserve better than that.
I don't want to mistreat my body. It's not my own little garbage can.
I don't want to devalue my health.
I do not want to binge and purge, binge and purge.
I do not want to punish myself anymore.

Imma do this, slowly but surely.

And it has made all the difference.
