Not because I loathe what I've become, not because I want others to notice what I've done, but because I started looking myself in the eye each morning, and I smiled. I accepted myself for who I am, no matter what anyone wants me to be. ...

Thank you so much for your comment on my blog, sorry I didn't respond sooner! I was a little surprised by my ending of the blog about not needing my weight to protect me anymore. Once I typed it, it definitely felt right!

And I do have cranberries on my background. I joined the Biggest Loser competition and was assigned to the Cranberry team. One of our challenges was to decorate our page for our new team!
