These are encouraging words... knowing that God is there no matter what we look like! He will help us through!
Shellbelle-- We have all felt down like this! I was feeling the same way before my surgery. It is definitely not a magic pill that cures our self-esteem issues over night, but it is encouraging to know that there is a tool to help us on our weight loss journey! This support group has also helped me stay encouraged throughout this journey!
Wishing you all a Happy New Year 2012! and that we all have successful transformations this coming year!
Thank you for your words of wisdom. I have been having a lot of self-worth issues and I try to encourage myself but it is nice to hear it from someone else's mouth for a change. I keep thinking that my life is on hold right now until I have the surgery and lose the weight. I won't leave the house or be seen in public and I think I am fooling myself into thinking that there will be a miraculous change once I lose the weight, like it is some magic cure-all for all of my problems. I am smart enough to know that this is not the case but it still creeps up into my mind from time to time.
