Because I do not want to spend the rest of my life looking like this.
Me, Christmas 2009. Sitting there, weighing as much as I ever have in my life, I felt completely uncomfortable. I didn't want to take pictures, I didn't want to dress up and go out, I didn't want to do anything but hide out. And that is no way to live.
So, here I am almost two months later, feeling like a whole new person. And this? Oh, yes. THIS is a way to live.
