If you look on my cover photo you will see the same picture with my son and I on a rollercoaster. That picture represents more than just a fun moment with my child. It symbolizes change for me. You see, there was a time when I could barely fit amusement park rides and definitely not in a kiddie ride.
Yesterday I took my son to an amusement park and was able to ride all the rides, and keep up with him and his cousin for 10 hours straight. Even though it's been a few years since I've lost most of the weight, I still get this uncomfortable feeling when I'm getting into a ride or when the person comes to close you in. It's like I'm back to that humiliating moment when I was obese. I feel embarrassed all over again even though I fit just fine. I think there must be a psychological reason for this, but I'm not sure if I will ever not feel these feelings of being a "big" person. To others I'm sure it is strange, but you do have to remember I was overweight most of my life.
Tonight I'm grateful I didn't let being overweight most of my life the rest of my life. It's easy to believe there is no chance for change, but I'm proof it can happen. I believe in you, whatever your change needs to be.
