What Do I Wish to Take a Break From?

They say men think about sex every 7 seconds.  I'm betting American women think about their bodies every 5 seconds.  With me it's about every 3 seconds. 

From the time I wake up in the morning to just before sleeping at night,  I am aware of my body size.   What I actually weigh doesn't matter - thin or heavy, eating well or binging - the awareness is constant. 


I wish to take a break from attention on my body and just relax with who I am, how I am. 

What do YOU wish to take a break from?

As Liz wishes so I wish for her. I totally understand what you are saying. As women, we need to let go of our negative thoughts about our physical bodies and know that we are beautiful and be happy with who we are!
