Beauty is Seen in the Heart

Monday, March 17, 2014

If what you see by the eye doesn't please you, then close your eyes and see from the heart. Because the heart can see beauty and love more than the eye can ever wonder (Indian proverb).

We all want to be told that we are beautiful...let's just be real...we ALL want to hear it. BUT it's taken me a LONG time to realize that first i need to know that when i look in the mirror that I believe that i am beautiful. We need to view ourselves in a positive light FIRST. If we believe in ourselves the truth is it does not matter what some one else thinks.

So about a week ago i started back at Day 1 at 259lbs. As of this morning i'm at 256.8lbs. That's a loss of 2.2lbs...exactly where i was hoping to be! a 2lb loss per week is my goal. I hadn't meant for Monday's to be my weigh-in days but i guess it works as it would curtail my eating on the weekends knowing that Monday i have to weigh-in.

    First of all, thank you for your blog - it means a lot. I've been trying to work on that; seeing how beautiful I am through my own eyes and not my bf's. I'll defenitely try to keep your good words in mind.

    Have a good week =)

    I LOVE this blog - and you ARE beautiful!! I tell my sparkfriends this all the time - WHY do we look for our worst features when we look at ourselves in the mirror? Look instead for your BEAUTY - because it IS there!! I'm so glad you are figuring this out at such a young age - not all of us were as precocious as you!! emoticon emoticon

    This is when I wish SP had a LOVE button - like just doesn't get it!!! emoticon

    What a great blog my friend. We don't need anyone's approval other than our owns and if WE think we are beautiful, sexy, and act with confidence then WE ARE! Regardless of what others say or think when they see us with their eyes instead of their hearts. We know how far we've come and we should learn to love ourselves even when no one tells us how beautiful and wonderful we are. Have an awesome week!
