I'm sitting here thinking of how many years I've done this battle with my weight and how many times I lost the weight and then gained it back and then lost it again, gained, lost, gained....and how much money I've spent going this time would be probably know the story as well as I do. I'm intentionally walking away from the mindset that my value as a person is connected to how much I weigh and what size I wear. My first husband of nearly 30 years held that control over me with his psychological games and I bought into it and was tormented in my soul by that until now. I have value and I am a good person regardless of my weight. This new journey isn't the same song verse 56. My inspiration is to be healthy and to have energy and with every pound lost I am achieving this time I am enjoying the journey, some days it is a mountain climbing expedition, but each day I am stronger and I am motivated to keep making good choices.
