That’s how long it’s been since I started this blog. Wow. And I’m not much further along in that journey. 15 lbs. closer, yes. . .but 5 lbs. per year? C’mon. But, the other day Kenlie said something that’s stuck with me:
The time I lost hovering at or near the same weight is gone. I can’t change that, but I can absolutely change the future.
So true. I’m a splendid wallow-er, guys. I can lament my failures and shortcomings all the live-long day, and never run out of things to say. I spent about a year consumed with anger, the next year paralyzed by fear, and the past year battling despair.
And what good did it do? None. In fact, it did quite a lot of bad. Damage that could take years to repair.
But I’m starting today. Because I absolutely can change the present.
