What Am I Going To Wear Now That I’m FAT Again?

What am I going to wear now that I’m Fat again? {Repost from March 31, 2014}

The above was the question that came into my mind as I walked into my closet this morning. Looking around I cringed at the boxes on the top shelf of “skinny” clothes I can’t bear to part with. Below on hangers are clothes that fit just a year ago, and strewn around are clothes that somewhat fit. Pending doom began to overcome me as I began to get ready for church.

But before I got sucked too far in self pity I stopped myself. I am so much more than a number on a scale or a dress size. I have amazing individual worth and my Heavenly Father loves me just as much as he would if I were thin. The problem is that I should love myself.

Deciding this I held my head up high knowing exactly what I’d wear today…

  • I’ll wear my smile – I’ve been blessed with many reasons to smile. Today I will think of those.
  • I’ll put on self-confidence – I can do hard things.
  • I’ll wear my personality – Life is more fun with a good dose of wit.
  • I’ll wear influence – Inspiring my children and others to live their dreams.
  • I’ll wear creativity –  My greatest joys come through creating happiness, through good design or kind words.
  • I’ll wear high self-esteem – I’m confident in myself, I am worthy, I am loved.
  • I’ll carry a purse of Pride – I’m proud of myself and my family.
  • I’ll wear my invisible crown – I’m a child of God with divine birthright.

After putting on this awesome wardrobe I left to church. And do you know what happened?

It turned out to be a pretty great day.
