There is a fabulous blog I read called The Big Girl Blog and C.C. had me hooked at her first post as she shared the story of her life with eloquence, humour and grace. She is amazing! I wish I could be friends with her in real life!!!
I’ve just read a great post she wrote that was so awesome I had to share it here. C.C I hope that’s cool with you!
She really nails it in the last 2 paragraphs when she writes…
There will always be men who aren’t attracted to you no matter what your size. And if your level of self worth is contingent on how often you are passed around by a group of attractive jerks, you will never understand how valuable you truly are.
When we make the decision to change our bodies, I feel like we often forget that there’s some inside work that has to take place as well. Working on having pride in who we are and not what we look like is probably the hardest lesson ever, but I feel like one of the gifts of a weight struggle is the opportunity to find a level of self love so deep that a million Abercrombie models couldn’t take it away.
If you are interested in some of my own thoughts on this topic you might like to read one of my old posts.
