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?
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.
