I have to admit that sitting down writing this, I feel more ashamed than empowered.
I've been on this site on and off again since sometime in 2009. During that time, I've lost. And gained. And lost. And gained again.
I'm sick of it. I just graduated college, and now I'm back up to just about 210 pounds. Since I was wayyy younger, I've told myself that I would lose the weight by (x) academic milestone: I'll lose it by the time I get to high school! I'll lose it by high school graduation! I'll lose it by freshman year of college!
Now I'm all out of milestones and not any thinner, really. I realized that if I'm going to really lose weight, I have to stop waiting for milestones and just...go for it.
I guess I have to let go of the shame and be proud of myself today for taking that first step toward really doing this, right?
