I have thought I was fat all my life. Eventually it had to show forth, eh, so I've been obese since High School. I have learned beyond that time that it was me thinking I was fat that was the problem, because if you saw my high school and grade school pictures, you wouldn't think "fat" immediately. I'm okay with all this because this struggle with weight has been the premium catalyst that lead me to discover body mind healing or spiritual healing.

I moved from being just fat to obese after I had my children. I'm a different kind of fat woman. I carry myself well. I choose stylish clothing. I don't think I'm less than anyone else just because I'm overweight. I don't enter into a crowd of strangers with a shrinking feeling. I have a commanding presence. I know who I am. I never thought that being obese made me less than anyone else, and I'm always surprised when I encounter that in others, men in particular. I don't come across as less-than in any area of my life and I've had to work hard within myself to get here. It's just been in the last few years that I realized that writing the be-all, end-all, do-all weight loss book was not the end goal in my life because that was not my area of expertise.

And what was my area of expertise? I fully love and accept my Self despite the size of my body. I know how to accomplish self-acceptance and self-love. I know how to accomplish spiritual healing, and that is perfect vs. dieting which doesn't work. My mind went boinnnng! when I made this discovery, and it's been a source of life-changing results. I wanted to reward my sisters by sharing with all obese women precisely how to achieve self love and self acceptance regardless of bodily size. This became my retirement goal.

I know that you can learn to fully love and accept yourself and I wrote the story of how I accomplisehd it to share with you, so you could use body mind healing yourself.

Obesity has been the main catalyst in my life. It is the reason I became a searcher for the truth. I wanted to find a way to heal this condition permanently. I tried everything I could think of to effect a cure. Not one thing I tried provided a permanent healing. Medicine didn't help; psychology didn't help; religion didn't help and then I discovered the self-help movement and from that jumping-off point, I discovered metaphysics.

That word, metaphysics, is really scary to some people. It shouldn't be. It's defined as the philosophical study of being. Studying being was a natural for me. I've always been a searcher for the Truth. I tried immersing myself in religion by becoming a nun, but did not find truth there. I'd even become a nun. I never had my questions answered satisfactorily. In metaphysics, I found some very satisfying answers, answers that allowed me to settle within myself and love what I found there.

I discovered that because I was thinking, I must be mind itself, because it's only mind that can think. I learned that, amazingly, life is a science and that it has a set of laws that govern it. As I became more skilled at using Life's Laws, I saw an improvement in my health, my wealth and for sure satisfaction.

Although I am still obese, I have none of the so-called illnesses linked with obesity. My blood pressure is 124/80. I do not have diabetes. My body is both sturdy and lithe, and at age 67, I never take any medications. These are substantial claims and I'm proud of myself for being able to make them. I have lost 35 pounds to date with purely mental means and I'm going to persevere until it's all gone.

I love to share with - well, okay, anyone who will listen - that there is a way that each of us overweight, obese, or fat women can gain this understanding and learn to love herself large as I did. I think in order to do this you have to ask yourself a lot of questions and find the most honest answers inside yourself so that you can make steady progress. Are my life circumstances supporting me to feel good about myself right now? What else do I know to do at this time that might improve my self-esteem? Am I willing to do that? If no, why not? If this won't work for me, what will? You can never ask yourself too many questions. Your questions and the answers you conjure up can be the catalyst that leads you into the promised land. I wish you great success.
