Acceptance is the Only Way

It’s in my genes.  I mean it’s not OK to be extremely overweight, I get that, but if I am happy and comfortable being a size 16 what do I have to prove?  The answer to that is nothing, nothing at all.  I am kind and caring, that is what is important.  I try to make sure that people feel better after they are done talking to me than before.  I want nothing more than to have a positive influence on others, to somehow make their life better, even if it is in a small way.

Society tends to put too much emphasis on the outside, when the inside is truly what is important.  I’m not going to lie, I love the person I have turned out to be.  I wasn’t always someone I could be proud of but today, I am.  So I am going to take my chubby little self and give her a nice tight, warm hug and tell her she is amazing just like she is.  ☺

Now, I am off to spend my morning with my beautiful mama.  Then it’s home to paint and finish up my bathroom.  I can’t wait to post pictures.  ☺

I hope you all have a positive, uplifting day.

Chow for now ♥

My son just said to me; “mom you don’t need to lose anymore weight, you have some so far.  I mean, if you continue to eat the way you do and workout and you lose weight that’s great, but it shouldn’t be a goal anymore just live your life and be happy.”    what a wise boy ☺
