Loved it!
26 October 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The movie had a special showing last night to approximately 100 women at our local theatre, of which I was one of them.

It was one of the best movie documentaries I've seen in a while. It spoke to my heart and soul. I wish every woman had an opportunity to view this remarkable film.

I'm a 45 year old beautiful woman. Even though I see myself as beautiful, I've always struggled with my weight. I do everything right, eat whole organic foods, low carb, absolutely no sugar, exercise 6 days a week, sometimes two times a day, etc. and still the weight remains. I get so obsessed about it... Not because I don't think I'm beautiful but because I want to see results for my years of hard dedicated work. In doing so, I go to extremes, it consumes my life. Every action, every thought is how I can achieve the result I desire. Through the film, Embrace, that I was blessed enough to watch last evening, I think I finally understand that God made me the way I am, and I should just "embrace" it. After all, who would I be if I wasn't the way God intended me to be. I'm Jenn! Apparently I was intended to be a 45 year old, healthy, beautiful, physically fit 5'7" woman and 195 lbs. If I didn't have my struggle, I would not have had the desire to be as healthy as I am today. They say everything happens for a reason, right? In my case, my struggle has turned into my blessing. Today, nourishing my body and exercise is a lifestyle, which is my blessing I received. I just have to learn not go to extremes and be kind and patient with myself. All will be well.

This morning, I wake with a new attitude, reflective of a new path and way of thinking...Thank you!
