I just read and responded to the "What don't you do" post and, as I was typing my response, I got to thinking. So many of us feel bad about ourselves as women -- we've even said (me included) that we feel less than womanly. We're concerned about how we look -- to strangers, to friends, to our husbands and partners, to ourselves... While I think some amount of focus on appearance is normal, I think our culture puts us, as women, under the magnifying glass. As healthy as a weight loss journey is, I sometimes think it can lead us to dwell on an unhealthy image of ourselves. At least this is true of me. My challenge for us this evening is to think about how much more we are than our bodies. What do we love about ourselves? What do we value in ourselves? As we work to get healthy in body, let's not forget the beauty of our spirit.
