I borrowed this from Hailey at http://mom2texas.blogspot.com
This is what I know...
~ I know how it feels to cry uncontrollably because you are that unhappy with your body.
~ I know what it's like to feel defeated in the dressing room.
~ I know how it feels to sit down and pull at your shirt to try and hide your rolls.
~ I know what it's like to pour yourself into your jeans.
~ I know how it feels when the buttons from those jeans cut into your skin and leave painful marks.
~ I know what it's like to stand in your closet full of clothes that are all too small wondering what you're going to wear that day.
~ I know all about not owning a scale to "avoid the truth."
~ I know what it's like to change over and over every day before you finally find something that doesn't make you look THAT fat.
~ I know how it feels to crave junk ALL THE TIME.
~ I know how it feels to see cute fashion trends, only to realize they don't make them in your size.
~ I know how it is to think "oh SOMEDAY I'll get back into my skinny jeans."
~ I know how it feels when your thighs rub together when you walk.
~ I know how it feels to FEEL your fat jiggling with every move you make.
~ I know all about "Starting my diet on Monday."
~ I know how shameful it feels when that diet fails.
~ I know the only thing that cures that shame is more junk food.
~ I know all about that vicious cycle.
~ I know how it is to feel like a prisoner in your own body.
~ I know.
~ So don't tell me it's hard.
~ I know.
