hmmm. several people have checked in, but no one has commented!!!
interesting poll, andy. and i'm not sure i agree with the premise from the start. if my self esteem were actually tied to my efforts in weight loss, i'd miss out on a whole lot of interesting life!!!! i'm not perfect. and if i let a slip ruin my day, i'd have real trouble picking myself up and moving on in any aspect of my life.
but, when i do my best, and actually see results, then i feel good. but i also feel good when i accomplish a project at work, or learn something new, or have any number of other experiences.
we ARE more than our weight. we have to be.
