I've struggled with weight my entire life as many others have. Last year, I read the book Health at Every Size by Linda Bacon.

Of course, even though I know this to be true, I still wish for a smaller body. I think I always will, but I'd be happy to just be able to walk around without being in pain. To walk up a flight of stairs without having to stop halfway through. Even to just be able to go shopping without having to stop ten times to rest. So right now, fitness is my goal, not weight loss. But I'm still hoping that weight loss will be a nice bonus.
