Watching Shallow Hal. It's a comedy but there is a deeper message within the movie- beauty comes from within. We are not all a size 2 and not all of us should be. Some women were made to be a size 8 or 10. And some women are just bigger even if they do not want to be- I am a larger size right now- and even though this is not where I want to be- I know I am a great person inside and out- and I will reach my goals. I WILL. I am determined and driven and I know in my heart that I will without a doubt get to the healthier and yes skinnier version of ME. But that does not mean I do not appreciate my body- or the "skin" I am in right now. This body has held babies in them - I labored those babies with this body and it was the hardest work I have ever done. I continue to be a mom in this body, I take care of kids in this body, I LOVE MY HUSBAND in this body and He loves me back. We may never be happy with what size we are so learn to appreciate the body you have right now- be thankful for the things you do have in your life. If not you may get to that size 2 and realize that you are still not happy with yourself. Look in the mirror and tell You - "I LOVE YOU".

    I love that movie and the message of that movie. You are right we are not all ment to be a size 2, all of us are made differently and intended to be different. The world would be so boring if all of us looked a like. :) love your blogs.

    Absolutely, it's all about loving yourself for what you are. And, to love and enjoy the material things that you have. We will reach our goals in time, whatever they may be. But, for now, love the body we have! A wonderful blog. Thank you!
