  4. Keep up the great work
     
  5. generations of genetic slaughter stops me.animals breed better animals,animals oppressing others produce inferior bodies.
     
  6. Thanks everyone for your support :) :)
     
  7. Wish I could lose weight. I'm 5'3 and 190 lbs. I feel trapped in my own skin. My husband says I'm beautiful but I don't feel it. I gave up junk food and sugar but nothing helps. I just cant lose the weight. :(
     
  8. I count my calories and do exercise. Go to a dietrician (sp?) and ask how much a person your height should weigh! And then ask how many calories you need to consume a day!

    Exercise is very important! I do cardio exercise (walking)
     
  9. 1 Peter 3:3-5

    3Your beauty should not come from outward adornment, such as braided hair and the wearing of gold jewelry and fine clothes. 4Instead, it should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God's sight. 5For this is the way the holy women of the past who put their hope in God used to make themselves beautiful.
     
  10. Amen! I love that scripture! :)
     
  11. I'm a stay at home mom and we are very poor. I can't afford health food let alone a dietician. You know sometimes when you only have 5 bucks on you and you have to feed your whole family you have no choice but to make a bunch of ramen or get 5 cheeseburgers from the dollar menu. Just 1 head of broccoli is 2 bucks. It's really hard to eat healthy when you are poor. I get 100 dollars a month in food stamps and that helps a little but doesn't last all month. I can hardly ever get out to walk because I stay at home with my daughter and she can't walk long distances in this heat.
    Not making excuses. I try, but am limited. Wish I had enough will power to just NOT EAT for a few days or weeks. lol. Then my body would consume itself. I'd get sick, but perferablly THIN and sick lol. I'm just kidding by the way. I don't have enough will power to do that anyway. lol
    I did however have enough will power to quit smoking 7 months ago. And stick with it. But I just can't lose the weight.
     
  12. Thats what I look like. It's depressing.

  13. 1 Samuel 16:7
    But the LORD said to Samuel, "Do not consider his appearance or his height, for I have rejected him. The LORD does not look at the things man looks at. Man looks at the outward appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart."
     
  14. yeah but I look at me. :( My husband looks at me :( My daughter looks at me :(
    Looks do matter. I don't want my husband to someday get tired of having a fat wife and have an affair with someone thinner. It would ruin my life.
     
  15. I appreciate you have been so honest about the way you feel .

    i wish i had some magic words to make you feel better but i don't .

    but i will pray for you :) the message you need to hear (you are loved) needs to be spoke directly to your heart . and only God can do that . will pray lots .
     
  16. Tiffany - you need to stop basing your self worth and your self esteem on the world values. I'm sorry if I sound so direct, but you need to know who you are in Christ. I have struggled with low self-esteem for years. Mainly because I've been called ugly and nasty for pretty much my whole life.

    But it has come to a point where I'm done living the world's standards. I'm going to start to realize who I am in Christ. And in order, you need to know what the Bible tells you who you are in Christ.

    You will never, ever be happy when you base your self-worth on other people. And on yourself. You need to base your self-esteem on how God sees you, not how others see you, or how you view yourself. I know it's easier said then done.

    You are fearfully and wonderfully made. Psalm 139. God does not want to listen to you put yourself down! You are so precious. YOu are insulting God when you are insulting YOURSELF. You are his creation. And by insulting yourself, you are saying that God makes mistakes, that He's not perfect, and that His creation sucks.
