  • You are so right! The standards for beauty are becoming ridiculous. Models and actresses are skin and bones, and those that aren't are constantly picked at by media for NOT being too thin to exist.

    I have the same problems and blessings as you... 40 something closer to 50, BAD c section scar, overweight, but a husband that believes I'm beautiful. I couldn't see it though. I DID lose a lot of weight (for a while) and after being in size 12 after getting up to 24's, I felt good about myself. Funny thing was I didn't feel bad about myself in 24's. Lost weight due to health problems. Then my daughter pointed out that since I'd lost weight I looked older because of the loose skin...wrinkling, sagging. Now I can't look in the mirror withOUT seeing that. I've gained weight back, not enough to fill out my skin, but just enough so I look fat AND old! :) We're the ones complaining about looking within a person for the true beauty and yet we're the last ones to do it. We need to stop this! I learned a long time ago that if I told everyone how wonderful I was, they believed it! I'd forgotten that. No more.

    Ivy, I think you're beautiful... almost as beautiful as I am. >:)
