I Look Good and I Do What I Want

a journey of loving my body and myself

About May 4, 2008

I am a recently married 29 year-old woman who has struggled her whole life with body image, weight, binge eating, and bulimia. In August 2007 I had lap band surgery, which as of this writing, has not helped me lose a single permanent pound. This caused a huge crisis in my life, as I felt at the time that I had tried everything there was to try, and yet I was still trapped in a fat, disgusting body that I hated. I have since stopped weighing myself, but I weigh something in the neighborhood of 210 to 220 pounds at 5’2″. I want to write about my experiences learning to accept and, hopefully one day, learning to love my body as it is.

    I think it is so awesome that you named your blog after my personal motto and I think it is the perfect motto for you to be using (I use it all the time). The thing is it’s kind of my blog’s identity and I am in the works doing some things with it so if you wouldn’t mind putting something on the top of your sidebar to the effect of that you got the motto from my blog with a permanent link that would be super. I am so sorry to be a pest about this!! I am really happy that it has inspired you so much!!
