Setting Her Free

Setting Her Free is a blog I try to read regularly about a wonderful woman's journey to becoming healthy. I never thought I would be able to relate to Heather because she is absolutely beautiful, but I have been thinking about what "setting her free" really means.

Although I still weight 290 pounds, still obese by all means, I have been extremely happy, it's like the endorphins have kicked into overdrive. Even when I have an extremely bad day (have had plenty these days at work), after I take it out at the gym, it's like a burden is lifted off my back. My confidence is higher than ever and I'm getting bolder by the day. I truly feel my new lifestyle has set me free, and that is part of my happiness.

And when you're happy, people notice and people talk to you because they want to know you. They want to know your secrets.

This isn't just a physical journey, it is also a mental and emotional one.

Heather is absolutely gorgeous from the inside out. She really knows how to relate to people of all shapes and sizes.

You are so right about the words "setting her free" we do need to set free the parts of us that have been hiding behind the fat for so long.

For what its worth, I think you are beautiful too.

I have to agree with Diana, you are also very beautiful!

Let us heal the parts of ourselves that need healing, release that which no longer serve us and finally become free of our limitations! Good luck on your journey!
