Beloved - AS IS March 28 2016
I confess that I am the heaviest I have ever been (even including three pregnancies). It's been interesting to observe myself throughout this weight gain. I know my metabolism is recovering (along with the rest of me). There's, also, the reality that I am in my 40's and foods are affecting me differently. Curiously and happily, I have been able to fully accept myself - AS IS. After all, my kids, family, friends, and Creator love me AS IS. Why shouldn't I? The extra weight feels like a security blanket. I am aware that this isn't necessarily the healthiest view of my body, but I am not scared or fearful of my size. I have been overweight and I've been strong and fit. I do prefer feeling secure through strength. I'm not worried about getting back in shape. I am an athlete. This part of my healing journey is pretty damn exciting ~ to simply explore being ME, AS IS.
