humongo boobs and a wanna-be-flat-stomach

I learned yesterday that when I smoosh my flabby belly against me so that it is "flat", I look pretty good. This gave me hope because 1) If I never loose the very round butt, I can still look great and 2) oh, I forgot number two.

Why do we stand in the mirror and criticize ourselves. I made the mistake of sitting in front of the mirror the other day and can we say "roly poly"??

Sigh. It's not that I think I'm disgusting to look at. I like my hair. I have been told I have nice eyes. Frankly, my husband thinks humongo boobs are great. But, for me, personally, I would like to magically twitch my nose and loose about 150 pounds. OK, OK, I'd settle for 120 pounds. Heck, just take way one hundred pounds, and we'll call it even.

Alas, no magic happens and my nose is getting itchy. I must plod along in this fat body and get there myself. Well, with Jesus, but you know what I mean.

Tootles! Have a happy Valentine's Day!

Yup, my hubby is the same way. I get so tired of looking in the mirror and trying to "suck it in all the time" and think I would be so happy if I lost 100lbs. I think I really would but its going to be a long journey and I am up for that and so are you!

Treat yourself this Valentine's Day!You deserve have been working very hard!

Why do we stand in front of the mirror and do that? I do that too! I also do the flat belly trick and wish that when I take my hands away it would remain flat. 2 children and YEARS of yo-yo dieting prevent that from happening. I understand the frustration of trying to lose weight. I, too, have lost the same fat over and over and over. The most I weighed was 256 in 1995 when I finished nursing school. I wore a size 22 and really needed a 24 but refused to do so. I lost down to 140 in 2004 but regained a good bit of it over the last few years. It has been a constant struggle. Last year I decided I was tired of being the fattest one. I was tired of being fat. I really was just tired of being tired. It has taken me a year to do so but at this point I have lost 70 pounds. It is sooooo HARD!!!. I still have 30 to go. It is slow and it is frustrating but I'm getting there one pound at a time. I also wish I could twitch my nose and make it all go away! Hang in there! Even if it's "only" one pound, that is one pound you don't have to be in bondage to anymore, one pound you don't have to lose. God's mercies are new everyday. He knows just how much we are going to need to make it through each day. The devil would love nothing more than to see us fail and we aren't going to let him win. I am praying for you!

Your blog is so encouraging to me! I love how you post the truth. I feel like no one wants to say the truth, but I come here and read exactly what I'm thinking and feeling. I have huge boobs, too. The sad part is, I think my stomach is even bigger. How is that even possible?! Anyways, I came over here to tell you that you have inspired me to start my diet! My last diet! I needed something to make this one stand out for me... so I started it on Valentine's Day. It seemed crazy, but at least it's different from my diets of the past, which is really what I needed. You know the feeling. "What makes this time any different?!" So thank you. And keep posting the truth! I love it!

I criticize my "flaws" almost every day. No matter what our weight, most women find problems with our appearance. It's hard, because I'm really trying to raise my kids to love themselves for who they are, no matter what. Good luck to you!

I can really relate to your post! For years I looked in the mirror and saw fat fat fat. Even when looking at my face and hair I was truly never satisfied. But slowly- and I do mean slowly- the Lord is showing me that I am made in HIS image! When God formed man with His hands he was forming me in HIS image! WOW!
