worth remembering

in my bloggie travels today, i read something over at that i decided was worth remembering! and reposting ;)

"I love myself because I am more than my body, and that will never change. However, I know my own strength and I know what I want for my future and that means making different and sometimes difficult decisions, but it is worth it and that is what I truly deserve."

wow, challenging and inspiring words that i definitely needed to hear! sometimes it seems so easy for me to forget that i am so much more than this shell of cells, and that despite all the work i put into my health, in the end i am so much more. underneath i am who God created me to be, and all this losing-weight stuff is really about discovering exactly who that is. even though the decisions i have to make are hard and many times other people (including my own friends!) do not understand, i am giving myself what i need and deserve.

anyways, just thought i'd share. props to tiff and check out her blog sometime 'cuz it looks pretty stellar.

Awww! Thanks so much for commenting on my post! I've noticed that when I only measure my happiness with myself based on my looks/working out/eating then I become a much shallower person and ignore the other gifts that God had given me- it's all about balance right?

Anyways- you are SUPER sweet and I am looking forward to following your blog too!

Merry Christmas!
