Journeying towards and into more and more wholeness... one of the areas I am learning to love myself in is in the area of my body and my food intake.
I really could care less about skinny anymore.
What I want is so much bigger then just pursuing the lie that skinny = happy.
Because I can tell your right now, from somebody that has achieved skinny many many times...skinny does NOT = happy.
No place, or weight or any amount of food or job or person = happy.
The last time I achieved skinny was really quite a eye opening experience for me in this department.
I was befuddled and bewildered that I was within 6 lbs of my goal weight, and was so unhappy and more depressed then I had been at my highest weight.
Now I am back up to where I had begun...a bit fluffy again, and I can tell you now a truth that I see so clearly now..
The only person that can make you happy is you.
Inside you and being at peace with you = happy.
And realizing this new truth, I am learning to love my body NOW where it is at.
Fluffy, extra curvy and all. :)
I am learning to look at myself in the mirror and love me.
Speak kindly to myself.
Offer myself compassion on those hard days, and lavish love always.
Now my perspective is not achieving skinny or a particular weight.
Now I want wholeness and health
...in my body.
...in my perception of my body and image.
...in how I view food and my relationship with food.
Whatever that looks like, at whatever size.
