I can truly enjoy my stelletos again and let me say I probably have more than any respectable 36 yr old should have, but I love rocking them again. (For all of you wondering about how that effects my back, DW asked the surgeon at my last visit and he said that the shoes in NO WAY were causing harm or contibuting to the pain I kinda wanted him to put it in writing so I could get it notarized since people are always giving me greif about the high heels). Yam- Yam, I'm glad you had a blast and enjoyed wearing your shoes!
They're just jealous!! I am looking forward to rocking some high heels, lol. My feet have "blown up" too! I'm wearing a 7.5 or 8 and I "normally" wear a 6.5. I put normally in quotes since it's been so long since I was normal size.

My feet have also gotten awful in the heel area. I have cracked heels! I've been dealing with this for years now, and use callous scrapers, etc. Is there anything pretty about being fat?!

I'm still trying to figure it out... nope... not for me... it was not my best look. That and my goth phase when I was 16-19 yrs old... I dyed my hair blue/black and wore black lipstick adorn in black lace... ah... youth...

Not mine either, lol. I was pre-goth phase and tried to be a hippy long after the 70s had passed. It was not pretty either.

You guys crack me up, and warm my heart. Amazing that we can come here and bare our innermost feelings and insecurities. And that we understand each other!

Yes to the feet blowing up - I'm back in shoes I had listed on Craigslist to sell, and glad they didn't sell. Yes yes yes to the dry, cracked heels - I find it easier to control this in the winter when I have shoes, heavy socks, or at home slippers on all the time. I am a barefoot girl in the summer when I'm home, and my feet suffer for it.

I have been trying to get around to this thread for days but have had my lovely DD1 and her DH here.

I am pretty happy in this old skin of mine most of the time. Occasionally I have a bad moment but you know, I am ashamed when I feel that way. I am so fortunate to have got myself where I am now. I have no right to hate myself.

So I stand tall (5' 3") and tell myself to be thankful, and just a bit proud. I turned things around and look better that I did for so many years.

Also, I think Diatomaceous Earth is doing something amazing to my skin. It is smoother and more hydrated than I can recall. And I really think the age spots on my hands are fading... So thank you PJ.

My answer to the original question is a resounding "hell, YEAH!"

But I sure didn't come out of the box that way. For about the first 20-some years of my life, I hated my poor round body like poison. And I thought that was ok. Not only ok, actually GOOD for me, like it was some kind of motivator. Poor, poor younger me...I wish I could whisper back over the last quarter century in my sadly deluded ear. I would say, "oh honey. Love every inch, fold, crease and cellulitic dimple on your judged and hated body. Love yourself the way you love everyone else--without judgement, criticism, and hoops to jump through. That there's a prayer in Hebrew praising god for including so much beautiful diversity in his/her creations, and that there are as many ways to be beautiful as there are ways to do art. That your body is the home of your spirit for this lifetime, and deserves to be unconditionally cherished because there really is no place like home...and that nothing good ever came from beating yourself up, for any reason."

My christmas wish for everyone on this forum (and in the whole wide world, for that matter) is that we all choose to find peace in our own skin, right now, as is, without having to change a single thing about ourselves...

Wow Patty, great post. You should express this as its own thread, everyone here would benefit from reading your profound thoughts.

Thank you.

Patty, what a beautiful message! You are so right, we need to love ourselves as easily as we love others, and not be SO MUCH MORE critical of ourselves than anyone else.

There's really no place like home. I love that.

Very inspirational and sweet, Patty. I think we all fall into that trap of self-criticism and think it's okay to judge ourselves harshly. Sometimes it takes very mindful thinking to get out of that trap and think positively, and it's something I want to remind myself to do every day. Thank you for your loving words.

To the original question...definitely not comfortable in my own skin. Not even close. Last time, when I lost 50lbs I didn't make it to that point either. It has been a long time....about 15 years since I had the second of my three kids. After the first was born I did lose a little of the weight but had another fairly quickly. They are 19 months apart...after that I never really got back to comfortable being me.
