I've 'lost' weight.
I've lost weight as a byproduct of what I have gained, the realization of my self worth and wholeness...independent of all else.
I don't know what the future holds, I might lose weight or I might gain weight but to me it doesn't matter.
It's not about the weight for me, not three years ago, not now, and not ever again.
I don't fit in a society's box.
I am a size 16, heavy weight and I'm healthy and fit. I could prove it, but I don't need to.
I am free and happy and have a relationship with my body I will hold up proudly as an example for my children and for every woman the will listen to me talk.
I enjoy my fitness practices...most days I can't wait to go to the gym, or trampoline or yoga mat.
I don't have cheat days or cheat meals....I eat what I want, when I want to. The trick is, I want to eat food that makes me feel physically well.
God made me.....and he made me good....so amazingly good just as I am.
Why in the world would I fight to change what doesn't matter, when I have everything that does?
FREEDOM became available in the moment that I chose it. I choose it NOW. and NOW. and NOW. Every single moment.
I love this big and beautiful body of mine, even with all its stretched out skin. It serves me so very, very well. It can do what I never thought it could. It has took a beating, and come back again...so loyal...so ready to respond in the moment that I listened.
I AM PLUS SIZE.....I am big and full of passion and hope for a world where we are free to be all that we are. Where our relationships with our bodies are joyous and full of wonder and constant growth towards our possibilities. A world where true health, in mind and body are role modeled for our kids, so that one day a generation will forget "not being good enough" ever happened.
