I have decided that I really, genuinely, actually love my body. I have a lot of weight to lose. There is a plethora of more attractive women on this planet. Most men won’t give me a second glance. When I look in the mirror at my body, with or without clothes, I am amazed. The human body is amazing. It is beautiful. It carries on so many functions. It can embrace hurting, pat a shoulder as a sign of sympathy, or cradle a new born baby. The body experiences both pain and pleasure. It can heal itself in many cases. So much about the body is understood, and so much remains to be discovered.
No, my body will not be lusted after or longed for. No one will be putting me on the cover of any magazines. And certainly, no woman will be jealous. But none of these things are essential for me to love this body. I love it. It is a blessing from God, and one I am learning to care for properly. In return, this body of mine has responded greatly. It has become much more efficient and energetic. It even has lost eight pounds in about six weeks. My body is not perfect, but it is mine; and I love it.
Thanks for reading, and cheers to all of you!
