let me be honest with you. there are some days that i abhore my body.
i want to scream at my high school self for thinking it was awesome to lift 180lbs on the calf sled in the weight lifting room during cheerleading for 4 years. it has left me with muscular calves and thighs. huge calves and thighs. don't even get me started on how wide my hips are. i mean, they were wide before..but after having 3 kids in 4 years...even wider!
then there are days like today when i think that it's wonderful that my hips are wide because they make carrying my daughter around a whole lot easier. (not to mention hauling full laundry baskets) and those muscular legs that i love to complain about? they do me a service when i have to make 6 trips up and down a long flight of stairs to carry all the groceries up.
there are still days when i dislike my body. but they're becoming few and far between.
the Lord has a way of putting things into perspective for me.
