Well, I am up on this fine Saturday morning. I am feeling so good. This past week has given me back my happy, cheerful self. I can be me, without worry. I can do what I want and enjoy my life without being monitored. I feel pretty good about myself these days. I feel like if I stay a size 16 for the rest of my life, that is pretty fabulous. A friend of mine from grade school posted a picture of me in like the 2nd grade, and I was always a chubby kid. I was chubby from the get go.
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 ☺
