What I love about myself: My sense of humor.
My biggest challenge in accepting my body and beauty:I’m never where I think my body should be physically. I like my body, but I get angry when my friends who don’t work out are thinner than me. In my mind, they don’t deserve to wear size six jeans. There’s just something wrong with that.
My biggest support in learning to appreciate myself:My husband. He loves me for me. He tells me how much he loves my sense of humor more often than he tells me I’m beautiful. I think that’s because that characteristic is more important to him in a mate. It better be!
Beauty is: Strength to accept yourself and to try to change the world at the same time.
Why I am strong: Experience. I haven’t always been this way.
Why I am beautiful: I’m comfortable with who I am — finally. If I weren’t me, I’d want to be friends with me.
What women must know: Believe in yourself and find your inner beauty. It lasts much longer than a sculpted stomach.
