Watching Myself

Photo by Mariana Montrazi on

Lately I have been watching myself as far as food consumption and content goes. My body and I have a complicated relationship. While I love all the things for which my body is capable, I am less fond of the few extra curves it sports as a result of some of the amazing things it has accomplished (like carrying twins and childbirth!)

So here I am again, watching consumption and content. 😔. It’s not that bad, really. In fact, sometimes I even forget that I’m watching. Especially when I’m goofing off with the kiddos or reading a really good book.

I try not to let my body and any discomfort I feel about it take over my life. God gave me this body, and I think it has done some pretty awesome things. It will carry me into the future.

I will chose my battles wisely. I will fight the urge to be hard on myself and my body. I will love me, just as God does.

    1. Thank you! I’m proud of what my body has accomplished thus far…four children (including twins!) and healing after many broken bones! It carries me everyday! I am beautiful because I am His and He loves me whether I’m tall and slim, short and round, or somewhere in between.
