Well, here I am at 43 years old - an age I used to categorize as "old", but now it doesn't seem old - everyone just seems so young! It has been 23 years since I have been unashamed of my body. Four kids and many stresses have taken their toll I am feeling my age + 20.

I want to actually look like the woman who is in my head, not the one who stares me down in the mirror, constantly nagging, berating and criticizing. I want to walk into a normal store and buy that cute pair of jeans or sweater, etc.

I want my butt to fit into seats again. I do NOT want to wear shirts that cover my butt. I want to be able to bend over to put on my shoes and socks without something in the way and excruciating back pain. I want to happily sit in a bathtub and not have to stare at my big front-butt, getting more depressed with each passing minute. I want a little black dress. I want to wear high heels and look awesome. I want to run a 10K and feel good afterward.

This is what I want more than anything - more than money, more than things, I want to stop hating myself.
