Default I love my ugly body

I came across this post by a woman who is a cross fit trainer who has suffered body image issues after losing 164lbs. It's a great post.


I'm definitely not in the shape she is in but I do love my ugly body too! Because:

- it gave birth to a beautiful son
- it has been strong enough to endure walking daily all over NYC
- it has a beautiful shape although a little big
- It's soft and cuddly and warm

"If you pay attention to when you are hungry, what your body wants, what you are eating, when you've had enough, you end the obsession because obsession and awareness cannot coexist." - Geneen Roth

I must be hormonal today or that was just super inspiring because I am in tears right now. Thank you for this. It reminded me why I'm REALLY losing weight and getting fit. Not to have a super hot bod, but so I can do the things I love to do and have fun instead of struggling. So I can climb mountains and paddle the canoe and ride my bike without being left behind or having to turn around.

I'm definitely with those who got a little weepy because of this.

Thanks! I think I'll blog about it and another one that I saw that is similar.

What's so sad is that we are so hard on ourselves. My husband at 47 years old still has a very nice body. The most his weight has varied in his adult life is 20 pounds - no surgeries, no scarring. His body is great.

Mine is a wreck - gaining weight stretch marks, pregnancy stretch marks, loose and floppy skin from losing weight. Small scars from gall bladder surgery. It's wholly imperfect and shows the abuse I've put my body through.

But, my husband loves my body when I am taking care of it. He just sees the fitter, healthier me. He truly doesn't care about the skin and stretch marks and all the things I fixate on. We ALL need to have that kind of perspective - the IMPORTANT stuff!

Restart 5/18/15 began at 263.9. All time high was 275 in 7/03. Low in Summer 2012 of 169.
A for the first 50 pounds lost, plus a for every additional 5 pounds lost on the weight loss reboot:
