I have always struggled with my weight, I avoided mirrors, avoided contact with others, isolated myself. I would only chat with people online. They would like me for who I am, and not be disturbed with the way I look. I met my husband this way. He was my first boyfriend and he helped me to grow spiritually. The greatest gift anyone gave me. It changed my life. It made me see that no matter what I look like, all that counts is the real me. I learned to love myself regardless of what I look like. I started shining in the inside and started enjoying life, started enjoying to move my body. I actually love working out now, something I never even thought off a few years ago!

My advice for others struggling with weight would be to accept yourself the way you are. Notice your inner beauty and others will see it too. Then all the rest, including the weight loss will follow. Love and cherish your body, cause it's the only thing you have in this lifetime. It guides you through life.

    You are welcome for the blog comment! I'll try to keep up as I enjoy reading them!
    Yes, I can walk on my foot and with my good walking shoes I can hike with Zoey. Just have to elevate them when I sit as they do swell still. Or at least my left foot, thankfully the right one is fine!!!

    Happy week ahead!

    I had a bunion removed from my foot and they had to cut some of the bone and do some scraping around it. Had about 10 stitches. The main thing now is the nerves on the bottom of the foot are taking forever to heal!!!

    Happy Weekend!

    Thanks for the info to "follow" your other blogs. I signed up and the notices will go to my regular email account, not SP.

    I'm okay, my foot is healing, however, slowly. I've gained weight back since not being able to do much exercising and just feeling "bummed out" about it!!!! I'll get myself back in the groove again, hopefully!!!!

    I like your new blogs and pictures!!!! emoticon
