This Is Quite A Change


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 anyΒ  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!

  1. πŸ™‚ Well done for looking at it that way. A body is just a part of the whole thing. And not saying or showing all that what actually matters . Although I know most people often judge the way someone looks,and it has a certain matter of importance in general – well this isn’t properly expressed but I don’t know how to express it in a different way right now , but anyway, somehow there is this ‘ common, general image that exists of bodies and such – … But there is so much more what I think has so much more importance than the outside. The soul, the inside. Of course the way someone looks like – the body, the outside- gives us a certain impression and yeah, sometimes I create this image or attached things in my head too when I just look at someone. But I know there is so much more and I try not to do it and look behind all of it. All things have stories and backgrounds. Bodies have backgrounds. It’s not good to judge without knowing and understanding, and I am always trying to keep that in mind for myself when I come across other people and try not to judge them or create a certain image by looking at them. Neither do I have this ‘ imagination of what beauty looks like’ if you speak about a physical way – bodies. Maybe it is something weird from me, but I have never fallen in love in a physical way with someone or did I ever think a body was beautiful. It’s more neutral to me, a body.

    ANyway, I’m drifting off in I don’t know what direction, sorry for flooding ….but I had to think of this video when I read this, I think it’s really cool what they have done here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E8umFV69fNg

    • Please, always feel free to write as much as you would like in my comment section. That is why it is here. πŸ™‚

      The video you shared, it was amazing. It made me cry, and in a good way.

      We do tend to make assumptions based on the outside appearance. This is probably because that is what we see first. But you are right when you say the soul is so much more important. Perhaps you have a special strength not necessarily seeing the body as beautiful as it gives you a better chance to fall in love with someones soul.

      You have some really great thoughts here. Thank you for sharing!
