Weight Struggles

~We delight in the beauty of the butterfly, but rarely admit the changes it has gone through to achieve that beauty.  ~Maya Angelou

This quote hit home with me today.  Having struggled with my weight on and off over the years and seen the reactions to me from when I am over weight versus about right, this quote just reminded me of how shallow this world really is.  People respond completely different to me when I am not as heavy as I am right this minute.  I receive so many complements and guys tripping over themselves.  Put on just a few pounds and get a little out of shape and its the complete opposite.  Now don’t get me wrong I prefer myself with the less weight and I do feel better than but I am learning that I am a beautiful person no matter what.  I would love to be that skinny person all the time and I am working hard to get back there.  But the truth is I really do need to learn to love myself with or without the weight.  I have much to offer just the way I am.
