One of the blogs I read constantly, but am way to shy to comment at, is Oh My Stinkin Heck. A smart, funny woman who shares not only her computer wisdom, but also holds contest for beautiful prizes-she is the kind of woman I want to be. I am drooling over the charms she is giving out for her current contest, so here is my little entry.
Ash is a wonderful girl. She is sarcastic and strong, and is raising two beautiful girls to be the same way. She writes of her body image issues so beautifully and honestly.
I have always been on the big side of the Scale. Even as a thin girl, I was a bigger thin girl. I never really paused to consider that my struggle may be the healthier one. When you see a slender girl, you assume she is okay with who she is; how can she not be? She is what you want so desperately for yourself.
Ash is fighting to accept herself. Something most women can never do.
Thanks, Ash. I am right there with you. We'll climb this mountain together.
