Loving my body ... well ......

I've never liked looking at myself. When I moved into my brothers house, the master bedroom has mirrors on the bedroom closets, on the closets in the bathroom, and of course over the sink area. Consequently, I can see myself from every angle - should I wish.

I am starting to think that this mirror setup might be one of the best things to help a poor body image. I didn't like the 'idea' at first but ...... I am okay with looking at myself now and not just because I've lost some weight.

Even at my heaviest, there were good things about my body and I think it benefits us to take a hard look at our bodes, completely naked, at every angle, and give ourselves credit for the good things about the details and the overall goodness of the whole.

I love my body. It is not the same as it was when I was 20, but neither is my mindset. I am a much more rounded person, more settled and more appreciative of all that is around me......family friends .....

Keep on track

Finding good health... mentally, emotionally and physically ... in my mid 60's has brought me to a relationship with my body I never thought I would ever have. I love it and how it serves me.

Lost 65 lbs and maintained since 2006.

I love my body too. It doesn't necessarily look the way I would like it too but that doesn't mean I won't do whatever is within my power to take the best care of it that I can, give or take a fried zucchini stick or two.

This is so funny, Amber, because my status this morning is "is loving my body". Mostly that means that I'm taking things easy, due to some pain today, but still getting in exercise and making my body healthier! Yay!

I LOVE MY BODY

I create peacefulness in my mind, and my body reflects this peacefulness as perfect health.
