|My first post here will be one of many thanks to the forum's creator and participants. I've been lurking|
around for about three months now, and have spent this
entire lazy Sunday reading archived articles. This
site, combined with some self-exploration, has
single-handedly changed the depricating thoughts I've
had about myself and my weight. When I graduated high
school three years ago, I weighed 30 pounds less than
I do now, which is considerable on my 5'1" frame. I
love food. I ate lots of it and gained weight, and
felt horrible about it. I ate up fashion magazines and
other harmful media images.
Despite my intelligence on most matters, I took these flawed messages to heart. I hit a rock bottom of sorts. Then I somehow, thankfully, found this site and stumbled upon photos of the gorgeous Valerie Leftkowitz. I thought, "My God, she looks like me." On top of that, she was so much more beauitful than any straight-model I had ever seen.
Slowly but surely my confidence has been growing, and I've never felt better about my curves. I don't love myself DESPITE them, but because of them! Many, many thanks and appreciation for what you're doing with this website, especially when viewed in the broader spectrum of aesthetic restoration. As an English major I've always been fascinated with Romantic literature, but I'm beginning to realize there's a lot more to it as well that society is letting fade away.
It all makes so much sense now. I'll be a visitor here
