Weighty Issues

How do you feel about your weight? Do you talk about dieting a lot or losing weight?
A lot of us grapple with self-image issues. But sometimes those issues spill out of our mouths and into the hearts of our children. Not meaning to, we project what we’d like to see in ourselves…. and our children pick up on that thinking they need to be that way as well. So they start off early with self-image issues.
If we sit down and talk with our children about weight issues then maybe they will learn to understand people’s differences and diversities. We can be honest with them while still teaching them how to feel beautiful despite their size or shape. It might be good for us to see how you can be happy despite having a perfect figure when we look at the beauty in our children and see how beauty is truly not a certain look.
