A few friends, and friends of friends, have gotten together to form a group on Facebook that I have entitled "Accountability." It started with a challenge that I posted as an event during Lent. I just needed support in my exercise and weight loss endeavors, and thought that others might enjoy a challenge. When Lent ended, I felt that I still needed that place to go to vent, rejoice, ponder, etc. Being a group-junkie, I began "Accountability."
We have done a lot of discussing of how we view ourselves on this group, as well as a Facebook Zumba group that I started and rely upon. The other day, we were talking about body image, and how our brains play tricks on us when we look in a mirror, especially when we have been heavier (for some time) and then we lose weight. I must say, thank God for my husband. He points out when he sees physical changes (for the better) in me when I am oblivious to them.
So, I decided someone I know needed that same encouragement. So, I made her this card:
Isn't she adorable? I have most definitely underutilized this Bella. She was happy to see some ink. I am also starting to enjoy the vertical fold (I guess that's what I will call it) of cards, as opposed to the book fold. Just something different.
