Today I am grateful for my body and my health.
You guys know this is a problematic topic for me because of my on-going body size issues, but you know what? Somehow, somewhere, I have also developed a really healthy respect for the things my body can do. Even after all of the abuse I've put it through. Even with diabetes. I walked a 5K on Thanksgiving, with major hills, and I finished in just over an hour without killing myself - that's wonderful as far as I'm concerned. And I'm honoring and cherishing my body with my thoughts and words - no more beating myself up for being less than perfect and recognizing that small steps, taken together, can move mountains.
