At first I thought I was gonna be angry… Oh no, here is
another bashing of “fat people”…. But nope, I agree with the
writing. I so do NOT want to be defined by a number on the scale. I
want to be defined by so much more than that. I am working on the
number on the scale ~ and now I am doing it for my health. Not for
an event, an anniversary, or anything else. But for my health ~ and
how long I will be allowed to live on this earth. And thanks to how
I have “soothed” my emotional pain, I had to have an
echocardiogram. As I watched the video screen, and felt the
technician push the probe to find my heart valves, I was amazed.
Amazed at how fearfully & wonderfully I, me, the person who
is the hardest on myself, have been made by God. That image on the
screen was a beautiful sight to my untrained eyes. And then I
thought, why am I making it work so hard with this extra weight?
That was one of many thoughts that are coming together to help me
on the pound-shedding journey. And God, please forgive me for
judging others in ways I have no idea that I have even done. Julie
