I forgot to write about part of the motivation I received on my trip a week ago. I got on the plane and ended up with the middle seat. My seat belt was almost all the way extended and I fully took up the seat. The skinny people on either side of me drew themselves in away from me. They never spoke to me the entire trip. I tried to make myself as small as possible but it just would not happen.
When I saw one of my old high school friends I was shocked at how tiny she was. I remembered that I was once about the same size as she was and we often traded clothes. I realize that things are different now. I am on several meds that cause weight gain. Diabetes makes it harder to lose weight and so do my mobility issues. It is just hard to manage life in a larger body.
On a much happier note, I have done well with avoiding dairy and sugar. I think that it has helped my inflammation levels a lot.
