Today is National Love Your Body Day.

And I’ve been exposed.

To tell you the truth, I haven’t been loving my body lately.

Through lazyness and stress from moving across the country, I have gained 25lbs in 6 months. I have been b*tching and moaning lately that I am Faaaaaaaattttt and huuuuuuuuuge and that I should be shopping at “Cedar Rapids Tent and Awning” for clothing… and I realized…

I have to stop bad mouthing myself.

I don’t have cancer.

I didn’t recently lose a family member.

I am loved by my family and my friends.

Though I am unemployed as of next Friday, I have skills and savings. I will make it through this.

I would NEVER say the things I have been saying to myself to someone else. So why do I say them?

So today, I am doing something I NEVER thought I would do. I am following in the footsteps of Roni and Mary –all started by this amazing lady here.

I am posting a photo of my body. The body that I am learning to love. And maybe I will learn to love myself during this process.

Since I am camera-less this less than perfect photo is from my cell phone. I would have liked to get more of my legs and less of my “girls’ but I am just gonna have to use what I have. :-)
