Loving my big body
This body is overweight, funny shaped, and mine. The only one I have. It is taking me a LONG time to learn to love it, but some days are easier than others. Some days I find it almost impossible. But I have decided….
I am going to treat it right. Cause every day, it gives me 100% of what it’s got to give. Every day I wake up, and I can walk with both legs. I hug my son with both of these “huge” arms. I feed my floppy belly, and it supplies me with energy. I use this big back, with all these rolls for support as I pick up my nephews and play with them. These narrow hips help me to bow when I serve Master, and these black knees help me to kneel at His feet. For every fault I can find, there are at least two positive purposeful things I can say about everything on my body. This helps me love my body. In the now. Not my “when” body. I want love my body today, not WHEN I lose 50lbs; not WHEN I get rid of this back fat; Not WHEN I get some butt….but right now. And I am almost there. I’ve learned to buy clothes that look good on me now, not if I lose 10lbs. I have learned to exercise for fitness, not for weight loss. I am learning that sexy comes in all sizes. Cause I sure love me a short thick chick or an Amazon. I am learning, that besides Master the only validation I need is my own. I am still a work in progress, but I am learning to not seek perfection.
