The Adventures of a Dieting Grad Student

The thing about being overweight is that there is a very interesting juxtaposition between how I feel in my skin. On one hand, I am hyper aware of my body, hyper aware of the space I take up, my inelegance. But at the same time, being overweight makes me feel unaware of the power I possess, the grace that can come from everyday living.

On one hand, I am hyper aware of my body, hyper aware of the space I take up, my inelegance. But at the same time, being overweight makes me feel unaware of the power I possess, the grace that can come from everyday living.

I'm looking to meet that person that went into hiding when I was a little girl. I'm looking to meet the little girl that loved to run all over the playground and never thought for a second that she wasn't strong and fast. That was carefree and ready for adventure.

I am done with my weight holding me back, of making me feel like a stranger in my own skin.

I want to glow from the inside.
I want to drink deeply from life.
I want to have a romance with myself.

I am ready for this adventure.

Hey - that weight ticker is looking good! How have you been? I've kind of slipped off in the last couple weeks, but am still keeping up the nutrition and fitness tracker. I need to write a blog in the next couple days, but when I do, you should check it out!

Oh, I'm so the same - I honestly will sometimes make white rice instead of brown because my brown wild rice takes SO much longer to cook!! I thought I was the only one!

Thanks for adding me! Can't wait to see how your progress goes!
