Yes I know I need to lose weight, in fact, I have been battling the bulge for the last 25 years. I need to lose weight to be healthy and to feel good about myself, etc., but let's face it, after 4 children, 2 of whom were c-sections, a hysterectomy, being over 40, that dam metabolism, etc. I have to take a step back and realize there is no way I am ever going to have the body I had when I was a teenager! So with that said, I am still on my journey to lose weight and feel healthier but we have to love ourselves regardless of our size and learn to love our curves, cause real women do have curves!!
