A bigger life in a smaller body

Risk! Risk anything! Care no more for the opinions of others, for those voices. Do the hardest thing on earth for you. Act for yourself. Face the truth. ~Katherine Mansfield

I am doing the hardest thing on earth for me - taking a break from all the expectations I place on myself and that others place on me. I am taking the time I need to heal. I am focusing on learning how to let go and forgive.

I am doing the hardest thing on earth for me - taking a break from all the expectations I place on myself and that others place on me. I am taking the time I need to heal. I am focusing on learning how to let go and forgive.

I am not losing weight so that I can love myself. I am learning to love myself. Right now. Exactly as I am. I expect that when I release my pain, I will release the unhealthy habits that brought me to this place and will lose the weight as a natural consequence.

Each healthy decision is an act of kindness towards myself.

For my Sunny Gals:

What sunshine is to flowers, smiles are to humanity. These are but trifles, to be sure; but, scattered along life's pathway, the good they do is inconceivable. �Joseph Addison

Far away there in the sunshine are my highest aspirations. I may not reach them, but I can look up and see their beauty, believe in them, and follow where they lead. �Louisa May Alcott

True friendship brings sunshine to the shade, and shade to the sunshine.

Stopping by your blog to say Hello. Nola here. I'm a 37 pound loser. I also have a horse that I love dearly. He was so happy that I lost that extra weight when we rode last time. Love your picture of you with your horse especially the one in the water.

Keep living for today. Live, love and laugh!

SparkHugs,

Nola

Aw thanks for checking out the dress! I'm glad to hear a positive second opinion emoticon Yeah it is a pricey one... but I agree a significant amount of money is being saved by not buying cigarettes so it practically balances out, right?! emoticon
I am so delighted to hear how well you are doing staying off smoking!! Three whole months! that is awesome!! I hope you have a treat lined up for yourself too, a new outfit, a day out, maybe a massage or a spa trip?

I hope you and Romeo did well in horse agility! He is such a handsome guy!

Thanks for your comment on my blog. I like your point about the cauliflower and spaghetti squash. I do that, too, since I know I can eat more of them. I'm trying so hard to change and be satisfied with what is adequate nutrition-wise and filling. It's hard when food is not only a fuel but also a pleasure.
