I weighed myself this morning – for the first time in over a year. I didn’t like what I saw, though I wasn’t entirely surprised at the number, and anyway, I needed to see it – face it, embrace it. It’s only a starting point, nothing else. I’m trying not to beat myself up about it. Tell myself that number, that starting point doesn’t define me. It’s just part of my motivation and resolve to do better now, one day at a time. Glad I’m here to do it.
