I am in maintenance/lose a few pounds/tone up mode. I've always had self-image issues. While I still am grossed out by my (nude) body, I have learned to appreciate how it looks in clothes...most likely from doing all my fashion blogging. (Check the blog out! Link is posted below!)

I was 149 pounds when I entered a VERY emotionally (and physically) abusive relationship in 2006. During the following three years, I battled anorexia (as a direct result of him...) I didn't think I was too skinny, I actually enjoyed that weight, but I was also eating under 500 calories a day, and knew it was unhealthy.


I still have TONS of body image issues, which are SLOWLY getting a little better. I do, however, feel so much happier, exercising and eating healthily.

I LOVE hiking and taking walks.

I some day plan to attend seminary and hopefully graduate with a Bachelor's Degree in Christian Counseling.

I would love to use this degree with long-tern prison inmates that are facing release.

I LOVE clothes and shoes.


I LOVE wedding planning.

I was a gymnast for most of my life...I miss it with a passion, but my step-daughter seems to love it, so I am living vicariously through her!

SOmetimes I feel so discouraged on this journey. I feel defeated and like I am a failure. Some days I feel so unworthy knowing I have not made the right choices.
At times like those, Christian music can change my focus and lift my spirit. today I share the lyrics of a song written by Geron Davis. His wife Becky does such a touching rendition.

Mercy Saw Me- Written By Geron Davis

The years had left scars. The scars had left pain. How could he recognize me? I wasn't the same. I knew I should pay and I knew the price. For justice and law demanded my life. Yet, his tender heart heard my desperate cry. And he saw my past through merciful eyes.

Chorus: Beautiful! That's how mercy saw me; Though I was broken and so lost, mercy looked past all my faults. Justice of God saw what I had done, but mercy saw me through the Son; Not what I was, but what I could be, that's how mercy saw me.

Wherever you go, you can't go too far that his eyes of mercy can't see where you are. He loves you too much to leave you alone. You're flesh of his flesh and bone of his bone. Yet his heart cries out for your heart today. See yourself through his eyes and then you will say, you'll say:

Bridge: Sin has stolen my dignity and all my self-esteem. But I was made brand new again when mercy looked at me.

Know that when the Lord looks at YOU - in HIS eyes - You are beautiful!

I really struggle with feeling good about myself, trying to enjoy the way I look, even if I am not yet where I want to end up weight wise. This week I share this prayer with you.

Lord, sometimes when I look in the mirror Iím not too happy with what I see. Please let me see me the way you made me, beautiful and perfect just as I am. Help me to hold this image in my mind and heart as I follow my lifeís path. Allow others to witness your light shining through me as I walk with confidence, grace and a smile on my face. Amen.

May we all gather strength and confidence and see ourselves as HE sees and loves us.

The road of this weight loss journey is rough. We all have our ups and downs, successes and failures. Just remember when the going gets rough and you want to give up
"I can do all things through Christ, which strengthens me."
