For years she battled her weight and she heard some hurtful things from the people who were supposed to love her unconditionally and she came to hate her body and everything about herself. All the words she heard had left their mark and she took them on to be the truths of who she is. But one thing she failed to see was that their words said more about who they were than who she was.
She used to hide from the mirrors in the stores and those at home too but now when she sees herself... her thoughts have begun to change. She challenges the voices in her head that told her she was not good enough, that no one could love her. She is lovable...even if only to herself.
And now as she stands in front of her mirror, she begins to see beyond the saggy skin to the goal she achieved. She can see beyond the scars to the place where her world changed the day her daughter was born. Her body had become a home. Her body had given life. Her body was magical and it was okay to love herself. It was okay to accept herself...even her flaws too. Not only was it okay...but it was time.
