I'm So Jealous
Jill at Brilliant At Breakfast posted this and I had to copy it for you.
Why, oh why didn't I have this attitude all those years when I was hating my body and feeling guilty every time I ate something not on the list and trying to be someone else* and generally miserable with food? How joyous this woman is! How at ease with herself! How comfortable at the table!
I gives me great comfort to know that there are some young women who are finding acceptance of their own bodies, who are recognizing that it is genes and not sin that dictates their waist size, who can eat and not feel either fear or guilt. I have decided that this is my anthem.
*Well, not really trying to be someone else, I have always really liked who I am, but trying to be in someone else's body.
