Hilary, what’s up with the weight loss thing? I mean, everyone has a few pounds to lose, right?
Yes, most everyone could lose a few pounds, but I have over 50 to go. People are always shocked when I say that. I think I must have small bones. I’m not even trying to get to an anorexic weight, just so the wii doesn’t call me overweight (I just switched from obese to overweight, yay!).
I hate how I look in photos.
I hate how my stomach is in the way when I bend over
I hate that my glucose tests have put me on the border for glucose intolerance
I hate how I can’t shop with my friends
I hate getting winded when I take small hikes
I hate that. I need to change it. It’s honestly one of the few things in my life where I don’t feel like I have some control over it. Ever since I got married I just added pounds. I got married at about 120 pounds, and let’s just say that’s not even my goal weight. Not even close.
Anyway, I am doing it, and I know I can. I am so thankful for friends who support me and prop me up when I’m down about it.
Life goes on. Hopefully, just with less wind resistance.
