I Feel I have a Beautiful Body!

Monday, May 25, 2009

No. I haven't lost much weight yet. Still A LOT more to go. But still, when I looked at myself in the mirror today after my shower, I felt beautiful.

I don't know what made me feel that way. I still have a lot of fat that I need to get rid of to reach my "ideal" body, or perhaps I should say my my perceptions of an "ideal" body, which may be not so correct.

When I looked at the mirror today, I saw a young woman in her mid-20's. She looks her age. No, she doesn't look older. She's perfectly young-looking and she still has her whole life ahead of her. She's kind of chubby, but has a cute face. She has some acne on her face, but it's being treated, and the medications seem to give some effect. She has small eyes, but their color is beautiful. Her hair is not so thick, but it has texture and a color that many girls would pay to get, and the hair falling issue is also being treated, so that's an extra point. Her body may not be in the best shape, but it does have a smooth, young skin. She's kind of short, but that makes her look even cuter.

That's how I thought while I looked at myself. I never thought like that about myself before. I've heard several compliments from people saying that I have a cute face before, but I was so over-concerned with the shape and size of my body that I never thought of myself as pretty before. Maybe what made me think better of myself is my skin and hair care regimen I'm following now, which started to give some effect.

I thought to myself: if I look good now, then how would I look when I lose some more weight? I should be amazing! And that thought really motivated me.

I think I've learned a lesson. I learned how to love my body as it is NOW, and then loving it will help motivate me to make it better and take care of it by dieting and exercising. I've heard this advice a lot before: love your body as it is. But I've always wondered: how can I love a fat body??? I think now I know the answer. No-one is 100% perfect. We all have imperfections and flaws. But at the same time, no-one is 100% bad either. We must learn how to look for the bright side and enjoy it and love it, and then take care of the other side to brighten it too.

    Wow I never thought I'd get a comment on my blog so fast! emoticon

    It came randomly alright. And I was really happy. It gave me confidence I always lacked. It will come to you too. Just believe in yourself, and remember that the best thing of all is that you're beautiful on the inside too. Outside things can be fixed!

    And congrats on your graduation emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Wow, that is so awesome. I would be shocked if something like that happened to me. I am trying to learn that amount of self-love. Hopefully it will come to me as randomly and unexpected as it did to you. And congrats on your losing weight and keeping motivated!
