That is so personal. You got to the core. I am an admirer of your work knowing of you from Olivia I work for.

My thought to share is we are so much more than we think. Sweets are the taste of that in all their presentations.

Beautifully written, Jess. And just from another perspective, MY mom was the one who hated her body - my whole life that was all I ever saw. She would starve herself, always on a diet, never eat anything for pleasure. Sure enough, I hated my body even though I have never weighed more than 130 (without growing a baby, ha!) I could love and appreciate other woman's curvy bodies, but not my own (when I was young). Having 2 girls did push me to learn how to love my body and looking back it is appalling to me that I would ever have thought I was fat, but our minds do strange and cruel things to us, dont they? I am currently under 125 and have cellulite as well....I wouldnt say I love my thigh dimples, but I do not loathe them like I did when I was young. I have learned that my opinion of myself is all that matters so I may as well have an amazingly high opinion!! Thanks for sharing such raw emotions. I always love your writings.
