I liked this article (2 pages).
Well, I've made peace with the fact that I'm never going to look like my skinny self in high school ever again!! LOL!! Why do we compare ourselves with high school?!!
I will not make peace with the way I look now though!! I will fight it every day until I reach my goal!! Then I'll fight it maintaining my goal forever!! My goal is realistic, way different from my high school weight and just right for my age. I so look forward to that day!!
Kindness is more important than wisdom,
Enjoyed the article, Suzan.
I've made peace with my body too. LOL, I've accepted the fact that it has a mind of its own!
Edited to add:
A couple of years ago, when I was 15 lbs. lighter--and skinny--and my doctor accused me of having an eating disorder (well not directly, but very strongly insinuated), I kept having to remind myself I wasn't fat. Believe me, I don't have an eating disorder; the only eating disorder I have is I love good food (lol)--I was eating healthy foods, three meals a day plus snacks between meals and had trouble keeping weight on my old bones! Last fall my body reversed itself and I couldn't stop gaining weight--I gained 15 lbs. and just recently finally stopped gaining and now managed to take off a couple of lbs.--from the belly. I don't obsess with losing weight--I feel good because I know I eat healthy (I might add I am eating the same way I was when I couldn't keep weight on) and when I see myself in the mirror I see someone who stands tall, has a nice smile and doesn't have wrinkles from worrying about my body!
