What do we do to ourselves?

Sharing this reflection after using it to respond to a teammate's blog:
I am 59 years old, about 5'4'' and over 200 pounds. I see myself usually the way I am told I look, overweight but not HUGE. I move more than I did a year ago. I am in smaller clothes than I was in a year ago. I have lost close to 30 pounds this year. YET...when I was 25 years old, actually the full 5'4'' and 114 pounds and a size 5, I could not see myself as thin. I actually had to ask a girl in the dressing room if I looked like her since she was trying on the same size. I couldn't see myself as thin for a long time. Now I look at my body and know it is healthier than it was and healthier than my genetics and family members. I know the belly is due to my c-section. My husband loves me, and I am okay.
