One of my old favorite songs is "Slide" by Goo Goo Dolls. I listened to it on my discman (!) a lot back when I got to my lowest adult weight about 12 years ago, and even though it has absolutely nothing to do with weight loss, the set of lyrics I kept repeating in my head was, "What you feel is what you are and what you are is beautiful." That somehow kept me motivated to keep going on my walks, since I think I'd felt ugly most of my life and I really wanted to feel "beautiful" like the girl he was singing to.

One of my new favorites is that Imagine Dragons song, and it feels motivational as well . . .

Itís time to begin, isnít it?
I get a little bit bigger but then Iíll admit
Iím just the same as I was
Now donít you understand?
(That) Iím never changing who I am

So this is where you fell
And I am left to sell
The path to Heaven runs through miles of clouded **** right to the top
Donít look back
Turning to rags and giving the commodities a rain check

Without getting too hokey, I'm on a somewhat h3llish path to change my health for the better, but I'll always be the same person inside . . . and sometimes I don't think everyone else can see that.
