Just remember if God can love us just the way we are
then why shouldn't we love us the same way... and
accept others and love them for who they are, because they are more than just overweight people,
they are people with problems some unsolved and un-
conquered, so we need to be kinder toward one another, God speaks many times of love, lets start loving ourselves & one another for who we are, not what we look like.
Blessings

For today, I will make myself love me for me and for the courage that it takes to try and change who I am so that I can be a healthier person. Not only for me, but for my son, my family and my friends who love me no matter what my weight is.

They believe in me--- so for today I will be a believer to.

"Unless a man undertakes more than he possibly can do, he will never do all that he can".

Strong, accomplished, determined.

Gawd,you guys, it breaks my heart to see that people are so down on themselves. You should be so proud of your accomplishments and your commitment to changing your lifestyle. You have to be your number one cheerleader and celebrate how wonderful you are and do not compare yourself to anyone else!

PRINCESSALEXA, The realization is the first step.
IMO, you need to counterbalance the negative self-talk with positive. You are worth it.

Today I was being class mom for my daughter's school birthday party.

When I started carrying the cupcakes I had baked, the goodie bags I had made, the decorations I had created into her school, I felt huge.

I was able to simultaneously experience that although my body felt larger than it was yesterday, it had nothing to do with my weight and everything to do with my feeling like"too much" as a person.

I love being creative, and I love any excuse to be creative planning a party.

I felt uncomfortable sharing that part of myself today with the world at large.

I hear negative voices from my past saying "Who do you think you are?"; "You are trying to be a big shot?"; "Doing it differently then other people is wrong?"

All types of feelings came up and often come up for me that have to do with the uncomfortability of being in my own skin figuratively and literally.

In other words the same problem I have being comfortable in my body and taking care of my body in a healthy way, is the same problem I have in accepting good things, for example my talents, in other areas of my life.

The same voices that have always chastised me for the size of my body, start chastising me for the size of my life.

Because I like to be creative and spend more energy then many on something like a class party I belittle myself the same way I would belittle the size of my body.

It is amazing how related the feelings that I do not have a right to be myself creatively, are to my feelings that I do not have a right to be comfortable in my own skin, body size, by taking care of myself in a healthy way.

Instead of being able to take in the satisfaction of my creativity and the joy of sharing that with my daughter, as well as other children, I have to minimize myself.

I am trying to be more aware of this and to allow the size of my life to be large and the size of my body to be smaller because of healthier choices in eating and exercise.

It is my goal to separate the size of my life from the size of my body.

In the past it has been that to be present in my life I had to be large or to zone out of my life I had to be extremely thin.

Today I want to be mentally present and living my fullest life, no matter what the size of my body is.

I want to get out of my own way and let the size of my body just be about the size of my body.

I do not want to act out my emotions and internal pain on my body.

Tracy...interesting comment....Lots of what you said is the same for me....I never really feel "thin" no matter what....and as fat as I am....I never feel really fat...until I see pictures or look in the mirror. I think that is how I get so far out before I do anything about it. I just wish I felt thin when I am actually at my appropriate weight....

JILLIAN322,
to get the quotes and weight bar at the bottom of your posts, go to 'edit my spark page' (under community).
The weight bar is near the bottom.
To add quotes, while on your spark page, on the right there is a box that says, 'personal signature'. Whatever you put in that box will appear on the bottom of your posts.
When done, click the button to save your changes. It is near the top on the right.

Have a TERRIFIC day!

I see myself the same all the time. I look in the mirror today and see the same person I saw at 170 pounds. That is not necessarily a negative, even at 170 I did not always see myself as fat. I do not look any different to me. If it were not for the fact that I know my clothes are smaller and people make comments about my weight loss, I would not know that I look any different than I did 2 years ago to anyone.

It was my loss of self-confidence and fear of loss that caused me to decide to lose weight.

Fat, ugly, stupid. I'm working on this, though. One thing, I'm looking at relationships in which I feel more f,u,s and ones in which I don't. I'm also looking at times when I feel f,u,s, and when I don't. For example, when I leave my women's weightlifting exercise class, I feel strong, healthy, proud. Trying to work in more of those times. I really want to get away from the whole appearance-focus. I let it take me down.

To all of you who are feeling negative about yourselves, and saying negative things to yourself and about yourself...

Your thoughts create your reality. Whatever you are thinking you will have. You CAN change your thoughts. Every time you think "I'm a fat cow" or any other negative thought, immediately stop yourself and say "I approve of myself." You may have to say this hundreds of times a day. I know you're already saying hateful things to yourself hundreds of times a day, so you really can work this into your schedule.

You do not have to initially believe this for it to be true, but it works.

OMG you guys! Now we're getting to the real feelings. I feel the same way about myself. I was wating to see when the people that felt horrible about themselves would write that down. I believe that out outside appearnce at times tells the world how we feel about ourselves. Anyone who wants to sparkmail me to talk can. I could use some talking too. We shouldnt feel "disgusting" "horrible" "Ugly". We need to all realy pull together in here and help eachother. NOONE shoudl feel that way no matter what they look like. You cant lose weight feeling that way about yourself and we all know it. We have to be our own best cheerleader!!

Spirit, Dont be so hard on yourself. I know how it feels to feel helpless in losing weight. Try your best to not feel that down on yourself because you have to atleast try to see the positive in yourself even if you feel like everyone sees negative on the outside.
