I thought If I could lose weight I would have the perfect body

by Barbie

My name is Barbie,

Growing up as a young girl I have always been bigger than I wanted to be. I tryed all kind of diets and it just seemed like nothing I did the weight would not come off.

At the age of 42 I lost 50 pounds and I really do not know to this day what happened. I have always exercised. That was nothing new for me. All of a sudden the weight just started falling off. Well I thought well now I have the perfect body, well guess what I was wrong.

when I was bigger I could find clothes that fix and looked nice on me. Now every time I went shopping I could not find nothing that a woman my age would wear. It seemed like all of the designer had gone from making small clothes to making everything for full figure woman's And no-one really payed much attention to the weight that I had lost but me. Sad to say but I had one woman to ask my daughter if I was sick. So no one really cared but me.

And I have learned that as long as I am happy with myself and God loves me and I know he does I will just be me. No matter what picture the world trys to paint I will allow the Lord to paint my picture for my life. And since I have learned that I am a much happier person.

Knowing that I do not have to look like everyone else cause no one really cares but the unhappy individual that's thinking that the world is looking at what you call your short coming their really not only you and I see those things.
