I've been in pretty much the same shape all of my life. Even when I played sports in high school, Granted, I've lost and kept off about 15 pounds since my heaviest state. I have a long way to go. I seem to always be making plans and promises to myself to start tomorrow or keep it going for more than a week. Food, I thought, was both my best friend and enemy. It was my comfort, my go-to man, my love and all the while the very object of guilt, misery and disappointment.

Mid March of this year I had a, no an EPIPHANY. Food doesn't have arms to pull me toward the fridge or pantry! I have arms! I have power over it. I will no lo longer succumb to being the under dog in this battle of happiness. I am in control.

Suddenly, everything made sense to me. If I want to wear a two piece or an outfit from Lucky magazine (which I subscribe to only to gaze wishfully at all the beautiful pieces I can't fit into) I CAN!!!

This time is different. It doesn't feel like all of my other attempts. It's odd. My addiction to food has somehow left me. I only just realized how incredibly free I've always been.

This is who I've always deserved to be.
