Go get that massage. Really. You need it. You deserve it.
I wrote a previous, recent entry about my massage guy, Randy. I went to see him last night, after work. My shoulders were tight and I couldn't get them loose.
Randy worked on my back. Then he worked on the front, working with the shoulders... Then he asked me, "Who do you need to talk to that you're not talking to?"
He's supposed to work my muscles, but he was on the money -- he could tell from my muscles that I was not communicating something to someone, and he was right. Once I was able to admit that to myself, he was able to get those tight muscles to loosen up, and today, I acted on the decision I made on the massage table.
Losing weight and gaining health encompasses so much more than just losing weight -- the weight, the flexibility, the self-esteem, *the emotional healing* -- all of these need to be worked on too.
Get that massage.
