When your mother says she's fat...

Tuesday, September 03, 2013

I need to share this with you all. I have to admit, I have tears streaming down my face and I'm choking back even more...

"Let us honor and respect our bodies for what they do instead of despising them for how they appear. Focus on living healthy and active lives, let our weight fall where it may, and consign our body hatred in the past where it belongs."

    Very good story. In our home it wasn't that mama was fat, she alwasy told me I was overweight, getting a moon face, ect. When my ex started cheating on me and I had my second battle with an eating disorder I just knew it was because I wasn't thin enough. Praise God to be healed and out of that mental place. The one thing I didn't want for my girls was to feel they had to look or be a certain way to be of value.

    treating yourself with love is so important it can set your whole day. My faith tells me that I am fearfully and wonderously made and I am.
