How Do I Look??

Hey girl. I'm loving the new look with your 'hair'. Seriously, I love it...I was just telling my mother yesterday...and you asked for honesty...so hear goes. As I was telling my mom (she has lost alot of weight since her stroke)..'watch that you don't wear baggy clothes'. Now as I'm sitting here, I'm wearing my grandmother's top that is about 14 sizes too big for me (LOL...seriously)..but that is my comfort sweater. As one that used to be quite heavy (same as you) and one that has lost a lot of weight, I used to wear 'baggy clothes'. Hide my body, thinking it made me look slimmer. So now that I've lost the weight, it has taken awhile for me to 'learn' to wear clothes that properly fit my body. It took me along time Denise to stop looking at XL clothing when I am an XS small now. So, my opinion is, I think your beautiful. When shopping for clothes (and girl, I get most of mine at the thrift stores for one dollar to three dollars) find ones that are your new size now...The scripture of the 'old man' and the 'new man' just came to me as I was typing this. Put on your 'new man' girl...Love ya and praying for ya.

You look wonderful, dear Denise. You do look a little weak, as you were not feeling well yesterday. I'm so glad you are feeling better today. You put a smile on my face. :) I like Angela's advice about the clothes. There are lots of consignment shops now that people like. And I love your beautiful singing voice. I hope our dear friend Peggy can see this soon. Love you, my friend ~ Hugs ~ Have a happy day.

This is the first time I've seen you. You're so sweet! I really enjoyed listening to you. You look wonderful. What belly? I don't see any. I love hearing you sing. Yes, if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed! Denise, you're such a blessing.

I love how you were talking about how you were in a good mood and you're wearing a 'grumpy' tshirt. It made me laugh - you are so cute :)

I think you look awesome :)

You have such a sweet voice.

And thank you for the message at the end - I needed it :) You are a blessing :)

My dear child,
You look BEAUTIFUL. I could listen to your voice from sun up to sun down, it is so lovely. You mentioned in your video that "God loves you", and you are right he loves you too just the way you are so why are you so worried about the way you look? If you are healthy, where you can get around easily and safely and you Dr. says you are doing good then listen to him. I know it is hard to listen to others when your mind is telling you differently-(believe me). But I'm sure you have had many talks with the Lord over this and listen to what you hear in your heart on what you are getting back from the Lord. You know he will never let you down. I know he hasn't let me down yet. If is wasn't for him my nervous breakdown would've lasted a lot longer, which the Dr's said it should've. They still don't understand why I made such a drastic turn around. (they had no faith) Always stay with your faith. Never second doubt it. Listen to your husband-he knows you best besides the Lord. Mine has been by my side through more thick than thin. He is the head of our household. The Lord speaks through him to me many times when I don't seem to listen to the Lord. He has been my rock even when my kids go months without as much as a phone call.

Your Friend,
Christina

Denise, I enjoyed your post today! And I vote with the others: you look great! I also think that Angela had wonderful advice for you. As far as your hair goes? Well I've been fighting with my hair for over a week, so your hair is looking pretty good to me! :-)Blessings on you, dear Denise.

Karen said...

I think you look much better and you sound good! I am thankful that you are able to make the videos and encourage us. You are a ray of sunshine, girl!

Dear Denise, You are a sweet and beautiful spirit. I'm praying for you and for your doctor to have a good report for you Feb. 2.
Love and prayers,

Pia said...

you look so much better now that you gained a few pounds. you look great! you know, for me it's better to have beauty from inside out because trust me, it radiates. and you won't get tired looking at that person because it seems like you're glued to her. that's the kind of beauty you have, denise. i hope i have that too. anyway, regarding the choice of clothes' sizes, i like what angie said. it doesn't need to be expensive. expensive doesn't necessarily spell pretty. you know what? you have a good singing voice. love the way you sing. it's from the heart. it's so sincere. simply beautiful! love ya denise!

Jennifer said...

Denise...you are as beautiful on the outside as you are on the inside. You lift my spirits and encourage me daily. I think that your weight is perfect for your frame and height. Being healthy is more important that a number on the scale or the size clothes that you wear. I hope you get on that show...that would be awesome. Love ya!!!

Blessings to you Denise.

What a joyful way to start my morning! Since I just recently found you, I feel I got to know your personality better with this video.
Now, I have "I love my Father, yeah... yeah...yeah.." stuck in my head. It's a good thing to have stuck there.

I think you have a shape that needs to be taken out from under wraps of baggy clothes and celebrated. You're pretty much just right to my way of thinking. Not to big... not too small.

And you had mentioned a slur in your speech previously. I have to tell you that I didn't notice that.

You shine. I DID notice that.

Karen said...

I love you, my beautiful sister...your words and singing brought tears of joy to my eyes...so very, VERY glad to see your smile and hear your sweet voice...

What joy to hear your voice! I just love it.
