A thought just struck me today. I have lost weight plenty of times, but always from external forces, from joining danceline, from changing jobs, from hiring a trainer to force me to excercise, but I have never lost weight in a way that I could feel really proud about it, that I had beat it.
Maybe this is my chance. If I lose weight, on my own, I will feel really accomplished. I will have a success to look at that I have control of my own life. I think I can look at as a challenge. I think I can believe in myself. Maybe I can do this.
