<*>*<*>*<*>WHEN YOU SEE ME<*>*<*>*<*>

When You Take A Look At Me

When you take a look at me and only see my height and weight and girth,
You are not seeing the whole of me. You are not seeing my worth.
You don't see my personality, my warmth, or my charms.
Only my belly, my thighs, my butt, my arms.
You don't see the beauty of the human inside.
You only see the fat, fifty-four inches wide.
You forget about the heart of the woman before you
You mock me and ask, "How can anyone adore you?"
And with that I speak as I hold my head up high.
"I will answer you truthful. I will not lie."
It is people like you that made me what I am today.
People who weren't taught respect that had mean things to say.
And with each cruel word my courage resolves,
The fear goes away and the pain dissolves.
I will overcome your words. I will stay strong.
I will be loved. I will belong.
Your words have no weight where it really counts.
They are meant to destroy me, but I am here to announce,
They've no power over me. Your words mean nothing to me.
And if you don't believe me then just wait and see.
For I will find the one who will love me and let me be me.
And if love doesn't befall me then I will learn to love me.
I will take all your words and turn them around.
I will use them for empowerment and not be bound
By the torture and torment the world has to give,
And I will live by the motto, "Live and let live!"

This is amazing!! Did you write it yourself? I have been struggling with my weight all my life. Five years ago I was told, lose weight or die bcause of a heart condition. I chose life. I have lost 166 pounds so far, and still have a bit to lose. Ive taken it one day at a time and have fallen off the wagon so many times. But I keep going. Your poem is so inspiring and I will refer to it on those days when chocolate is the only thing I want. LOL Best of luck to you...

Thanks Ginger.....I found the poem and had to place it here..because I can relate to the words that are spoken...

when you are overweight most of your life....it is tough....hence, maybe the reason I wanted to add these blogs here - at a sex website...where society dictates that self worth is based so much on the outer beauty and you "won't fit in" if you arent' up to the status quo....

I battled many years trying to reach the point to where I am now...I am strong...and I am not doing this because of physical attributes....but for my health....I want to live...and be healthy...

My hats off to you lady....for going as far as you have - 166 pounds is alot of weight...so CONGRATS to you....you did it!!

Keep me informed how you are doing.....I'm behind ya!!

Sorry I took so long to reply to you. Weight is still a battle, but I think I'm winning. I'm now up to 174 pounds lost. How are things with you?
