I just finished a book on Fat Girls. I consider myself a bit hefty, but I accept this as how God made me. I already knew that society worships the female body and I know that my body is not in this ideal realm that fits today's demands. I now have a stronger conviction that my body is a creation that is to be cherished and worshipped, not by society as a whole, but by me.

I look at nature, science, and many wonderous things as awesome works of God and I praise and thank Him for these gifts all the time. I had never thought that my body was an equally awesome gift that I should be thankful for. I gave birth to two children with this gift God gave me!

So just when I thought I had thanked God for all the blessings in my life, I found yet another one.

It is good to love yourself because you are God's own creation. If you don't have any health problems, just thank God and enjoy your children. Thank God for life.
