I have not treated you very well, especially during the last few years. I now understand that my weight is your best effort to deal with all the extra calories I consumed because I was stressed or sad or anxious, agitated or distracted, or just wanting something that tasted good. I look at you and realize how much I have struggled recently, because a balanced life does not result in such a significant weight gain.
I'm not going to do a perfect job correcting the issues that got you to this state, but I'm understanding more each day and am working to do better every day. In the meantime, I want to apologize for ignoring you for so long. I will do better. And I will remember that taking care of you is taking care of me, because we are me.
