What with work issues, I haven't written much about food issues.

Well, they are still there. As in I feel huge, nothing fits right, and I am horrified by my stomach.

I think about so many bloggers I follow, so many great men and women who have worked hard to like the bodies they have - just as they are. They don't look at celebrities or passers-by and agonize about why they aren't as thin. They genuinely like food AND their own bodies. And I can't.

Is this ever going to stop? I have no idea how to accept myself.

it DOES get better. you're in the process. at least you recognize that this thinking isn't the healthiest.

remember a time when you body image and eating were better. you can do and will do it again.

i still compare myself, but i know that the angelina jolie thing isn't going to be happening for me. better work with what i got. (thus the sparkly nails)

i don't mean to be flip. you're having a hard time. hope you've found good therapy.

love, melissa

I wonder this same thing all the time. I have to keep reminding myself that all those people I know who fought this battle and are now healthy and loving to their bodies had these moments of wondering too. And that if I keep working at it, maybe one day I can accept my body too.
