    In the past month I have lost a lot of weight off my body. I give God all the praise & honor because without Him I would not have achieved it.

    Before my weight loss, I used to be this depressed girl that would pack her face w/ make-up because she thought that she was too ugly and too fat to be loved or to be beautiful. Although I should have treated my body like a temple, I was treating my body like a junkyard. I totally hated myself, I did not like myself one bit. I was disgusted every time I looked in the mirror because through my eyes, beauty was not reflected.

    A couple of weeks into this journey, I was brought closer to Jesus, it made me realize how beautiful and loved I am by Love Himself. Jesus thought I WAS TO DIE FOR! :’)

    I finally came to the realization that I don’t need excessive amounts of make up to feel beautiful. Although I did believe I had to lose weight because if I can’t take care of my body, how am I going to take care of His body as well?

    I always get so teary when I write/talk about my past, even if it is the past it still gets to me. If it wasn’t for Jesus I probably would’ve been cutting myself, overdosing, seeking attention and love in the wrong places. Now I can honestly say that I love myself for who I am w/ or without makeup. Even if nobody on Earth loves me, I always remind myself that I have a jealous and zealous Lover and He thinks I am beautiful.

    We all were created in the image and likeness of GOD (Gen. 1:27) I would rather be who God created me to be and serve His purpose than to me be a cloan image of what society says is right. I was created by the Master Designer God and I am filled with beauty!

    “You are altogether beautiful, my darling, beautiful in every way.” -Song of Solomon 4:7
