I Am Confortable With Me The Way I Am

I have never appeared as the thin sleek type.  My body would have been appreciated in the early 40s.  I had that hour glass figure big on the top, small in the waist and rounded hips.  I chose not to stay that way I had a breast reduction to help my back.  I'm glad I did I'm so much more comfortable.  I have gained weight over the decades.  It bothers me but I work hard at righting myself when something happens and I feel I'm not on the road to good health.  I feel competent and successful in my life.  To me taking care of my health and being who I am is all.  Take me as I am or not at all.

That is too bad that you judge other people. Only God can judge. From what you have written in your comment, I would imagine that you expect to be judged by women. As we all age, will you still expect perfection?<br />
<br />
You seem to be a very shallow person and that is sad...<br />

Very wise my girl. As long as we are on a path of health in our journey of life I feel we are as we should be. God didn't say go forth and change your body and behaviors to please others.

A very powerful story. So many people try to be perfect and nobody is or will be - the one perfect person to walk the face of the earth is gone and He will come again.<br />

I was just reading an article online about how so many celebrities have gone under the knife and regretted it. There is so much pressure on people to look and behave a certain way and so many people are judgemental. The younger gereration is even worse with their cyber-bullying - so many more girls now than ever are starving themselves to death.<br />

Why can't people just accept themselves the way they are? In God's eyes we are perfect and that is all that we should care about... <br />
