  1. You should be proud of yourself for running the 3.1 miles because some people struggle to run one! Especially if it was your first race, your time is great! As someone who ran their first half marathon last Nov., I know what it is like to compare yourself with others and times. But running any race or mileage is a HUGE accomplishment. You go girl!!!

  2. ” … pretty enough or good enough to be happy.”

    Please don’t ever say that again, because I think you’re absolutely gorgeous.

  3. that was so amazing my friend introdused me to this site i am allways thinking i am to fat or to ugly or to short this is so imspiring an it is making me cry cause girls everywhere are doin thigs to thier body that girls should not do they hurl every night,starve them selves just to be skinny… hav seurgery, take pills just to be perfect…all for a stupid boy if that boy really and truly loves u he wouldnt judge u

  4. Be proud of yourself. I used to be athletic, until I came down with rheumatoid arthritis…and then gained more weight. (Was never what the doctor’s charts call “normal”, anyhow.) What a horrible feeling to lose command of your body! I couldn’t walk without a drastic limp before. Slowly, I started appreciating and honoring my body, and now I can manage a slight jog in place. You can RUN! I actually dream about running. Be proud. Your body is capable. Enjoy it, woman.

  5. Hello I m sooo proud of u… i started running in june 2010 and now i m planning to run a 1/2 marathon in Oct 2010. Keep up ypur good work..

    ps your r beautiful..

  6. I only weigh 125, and am 5’5 but I couldn’t run that far (yet). So that is an achievement in itself, truly. You can look fit and have a healthy weight so to speak but still not be in shape. I wish I could run that much, having played soccer for 15 years, getting tired after 30 minutes on a treadmill really sucks! But I’m working on it. So, good job! You’re amazing!

  7. WELL DONE on doing the 5k-no matter what that is an achievement. I have been a lifelong couch potato myself and am running the 5k next month-and its a big challenge if you’re not used to it. Celebrate every success! And just remember that if your body works can run, talk, laugh, hug loved ones then its good enough! I myself need to stop exercising to ‘lose weight’ or gain a flat stomach but do it so that my body stays strong and healthy.

    Oh and just to mention I’m running the 5k when two of my housemates are suuuuuuuper sporty-one plays netball for the country and the other runs for the country-but everyone does things at their own pace!

  8. I really appreciate this post. I’m only 16 and could not even begin to describe how unhappy i have been with my weight, I’m afraid that no one wants to accept me because of the way i look. But then i found my boyfriend,he literally brings out the best in me, he makes me feel good about my self, you are so right when you say that support helps a lot because it so does. My boyfriend will love me no matter what, and that’s exactly what i needed in my life, someone who excepts me and loves me for me. I mean i’m not even that far over weight i guess, i’m 5’8 and i weigh 167pounds but i just feel like i need every where i go i’m being judged, and this website has taught me to no care 🙂 by the way, you are very beautiful and inspiring 🙂
