What with one thing and another, I have gained a significant amount of weight since marrying Luke.
And I don’t like it.
I don’t like how my body looks bigger.
Luke says I need to love my body.
Glennon says I need to love my body.
But I don’t.
I would probably body-hate my way into an eating disorder if my husband weren’t watching out for that.
I don’t love my body and I don’t even want to. I don’t even want to want to.
But even so, here is the skin I am in. And I’ve spent enough of my life feeling like I was a terrible person. I was raised with shame and I certainly don’t love that.
So even though I’m not ready to love my body, I’m ready to not be ashamed of it anymore.
Resolution, more full body pictures.
This is me. And I won’t live with shame anymore.
