i am down nearly 15 pounds
since i started
and this morning after i took
my shower i decided
to put lotion on my legs.
something that i seldom
take time to do...
it was all i could do to hoist
my foot up on the toilet seat and
as i looked down at my ugly foot
and my "not quite so swollen" leg
i started to cry as i rubbed in the lotion.
i realized that i have been disgusted
by myself.
that i am kinder to strangers than
i am to myself...
i was sobbing by the time i was
finished with both legs and i decided
that i am going to start
saying and thinking nicer things
to myself.

    I love your blog you are so right we are often kinder to strangers than ourselves. we have to stop thinking that we are being selfish if we do something kind for ourselves. your blog is a great reminder that we should treat ourselves with kindness and respect like we would others.
    thanks for sharing

    I love the honesty of your poem. Some days are better than others on this journey. It's about baby steps, one foot in front of the other, ever forward. I am glad you found my post inspirational. I saw it this morning it reminded me to stop focusing on the negative!! Glad to have you as a sparkfriend!
