Too much pressure and body acceptance


I believe I set my goals to high when I stated I would post 3 times a week. Having taken on, although really really part time, two jobs that take me out of the house 4 days a week,  I feel overwhelmed trying to find time to write. I think one post a week and maybe a picture thrown in might be all I can handle right now.

I started writing something about exercising while fat and then I read this. Most of Naomi’s thoughts could have been mine. Enjoy.



An Open Apology…

This made me cry this morning. How I wish I could just make more women in my life realize their bodies are wonderful RIGHT NOW. Just the way they are.

It’s taken me years to accept my fat body. And some days, I don’t like the way I look in the mirror. I still shy away from having my picture taken, although that is something I’m currently working on. But when I wake up in the morning, I am thankful for what my fat body does for me! I nourish this body of mine with real food, exercise, and rest.

Do you love your body? What do you do to take loving care of your body?
