Today is a "weigh in day" for me. Since last October, I've put on roughly 25 pounds! Honestly I have no one or nothing to blame this on except myself! Oh I could tell you that my circumstances were gloomy and times were tough, but I can also tell you that overeating didn't solve any of my problems. In fact, it just gave me one more.
Now I have some choices. I can sulk over the fact that my clothes no longer fit and I'm overweight. I can call myself a loser and a failure. I can sit in my house in front of the TV with an open bag of chips and gain more weight as I weep about myself. Yes, I could. And believe me I have at times done all of this. But not today.
Today, my choice is to treat myself like I was made in the image of God (see http://beautifulp31.blogspot.com/2008/05/image.html).
I'm going to treat myself like my body is the temple of the Lord's (see http://beautifulp31.blogspot.com/2008/03/take-care-of-your-temple.html).
I'm going to treat myself like I'm God's masterpiece (see http://beautifulp31.blogspot.com/2008/03/gods-masterpiecewho-me.html).
When I look at myself through God's eyes, my weight really doen't matter at all.
Here I go. Although I'd like to be lighter, I know I'm dearly dearly loved. And that I am beautiful:)
Bye Bye Beautiful Friends,
