Losing Your First 10 Pounds (Lauren Wardell): Prompt 3

Sunday, November 10, 2013

Who are you besides your looks? What are you most proud of about yourself? What do you people compliment you on the most? What are your greatest talents? Are you a great leader? Amazing student? Awesome parent? Super reliable? Extremely kind and compassionate? What makes you YOU?

Wardell, Lauren (2013-10-17). Losing Your First 10 Pounds (Your Pathway to Vitality) (Kindle Locations 236-237). . Kindle Edition.

I almost forget I'm so obese sometimes but a look or comment from someone reminds me. I'm usually normal size in my dreams. Strange. I'm very responsible. I'm usually a kind and compassionate person. I have a good sense of humor. Most people think I'm out going but I'm not. I'm self conscience and uncomfortable around people most of the time....I hide it well. Maybe I wouldn't be if I didn't feel so uncomfortable in my body....even after all of these years. I'm creative....can sew and do crafts and make the house look nice (at least what I think looks nice) without spending a lot of money sometimes. I'm a good employee. I can put people at ease without too much effort. I could write this so much easier if I were listing all of my faults.

    We def have to work at zapping all of that negativity! Negativity is definitely toxic! It might be hard for you to write positive things about your life, but when you really sit down and think about it and do it, it can be amazing how many wonderful things spring up about yourself!

    I do understand. Where did all this shallowness come from? We are so much more than this shell we use to get around. Our friends and those who love us do not care what size we are.
    I grew up thin. But I never knew I was because my siblings kept teasing me about how big I was. When I was 35 I finally came to realize that I was not the jolly green giant. Since then, I have put on 80 pounds and do not feel as fat as I did when I was skinny. It's all about what is in our heads.
    Those people who make those cruel comments sure must have their own ghosts to feel they have to pick on us...
