on loving myself


what this blog is not --

it is not a forum for bashing or shaming myself or others.

I know the title will lend itself to some scrutiny and criticism from those that think I don't love myself; or that I am 'fat shaming' others.  That was never, nor will ever be my intention.  The term "too cute to be fat" specifically relates to how I chose to keep myself motivated during my workouts.  As I met different floor instructors at my gym, exercise enthusiasts and the like, we would discuss my goals and what I would like to accomplish.  And instead of pouring out my heart and soul ('casue we'd have been there all day) I would say something like "I am working of making sure my face matches my body," or my favorite mantra..."Because I am too cute to be fat." Trust me, I probably love myself more than anyone (besides God, Jesus and my husband).  I really do think I am beautiful, pretty, and all that.  However, I have not managed my temple wisely over the years.  

Yes, I LOVE MYSELF, but I want to be my best self.  The me that God intended for me to be.  Not an unhealthy weight, sickly, tired and skating on extremely thin ice with my life.  

I love me enough to be real with myself, and recognize that I need help and I need to start somewhere.

I believe that this blog will save my life.  You may not know it, but you all are my support system.  Every 'like,' every 'thumbs up,' and every 'share' gets me one step closer to my goal.  

My hope is that you find inspiration here, and that you love yourself everyday no matter where you are in your healthy living journey.  I absolutely love people, so connect with me.  I would love to hear from you.

God Bless.
