I think women who are happy with themselves and kind and confident are beautiful. I also buy into American stereotypes, I admit it, and think women who take good care of their bodies, hair, skin and health are beautiful. I need work on both. I could stand to lose about 25 lbs, so I’m going to work on that first for my “outside” work, and I could definitely work on projecting kindness, so that’s what I’m going to work on first for the “inside”. I will also working on developing a sense of personal style, not worrying about what other people think, and taking impeccable care of my whole body, from my hair down to my toenails. But one thing at a time, I think. Hey, if I lose 25 lbs, I’ll have less surface area to work on! ha ha ha. So to begin this goal, I will exercise more and make better choices about what I eat, to facilitate weight loss, and make consciously kind choices and remember to SMILE.
That’s what I have to do everyday…remember to SMILE.
A friend of mine says that fat women are more cheerful and happy .Does it mean they are more beautiful?
Mmmm. . .good point
I know some “overweight” women who are totally happy and it shows. I think happy people are better looking than miserable people, fat or thin. But I would disagree with the blanket statement that fat women are more cheerful, I know too many heavy women who are miserable, hate their bodies, and are less beautiful because of it. So. . . do I accept my chubbiness, relish it and become beautiful through self-peace, self-love and self-confidence? Or do I lose a few pounds and become beautiful through being healthier, proud of an accomplishment, self-confidnece and a nicer ass? Or a bit of both? Loving my body for its accomplishments like running a 5K, or lifting a 50 lb 5 year old on my shoulders and walking around Legoland all day, perhaps dropping a dress size in the process? I’m not proud of the vanity, I recognize its foolishness, but recognizing it hasn’t yet made it go away, I’m afraid. Good point, you made me think!! Thank you!

Thank you for sharing
Tell me more about your decision to change your insides first? Was it a conscious decision? What did you do to start?
