Redefining My Comfort Zone

I'm still inventing my own language for what this process/journey means to me. Every day is a discovery of the topography of my own joys, strengths, weaknesses, and fears. I know one absolute truth: this is going to take time.

I weigh 350 pounds, am 31 years old, and live in Vermont with my husband and our four cats. I've been fat my entire life and have never, ever ran more than a 1/16th of a mile. I'm hoping to lose weight and gain fitness. I want to hike, run, canoe, camp, and ...

My friend Abby, my strangely-similar-sister-person. Congrats on the new job, though it's old news by now. I'm so glad to hear it. I hope things have been going well for you. I'm sorry to have been MIA, but I'm back, and doing well. I just thought I'd drop by and see how you were doing! Take care!
