I've had two new people start this week.. And explaining to them that I've lost 125 pounds, which is something that comes up when people ask me what I'm eating or why I keep fresh eggs at work, may save me.
It's not that I've been lost.. I've been unfocused, overworked and stressed, and reaching more and more for convenience over nutritious food.
But I still define myself as someone who chooses to be healthy. And re-defining myself to them as that person suddenly sparked a new resolve to live by that definition - its a tiny little switch that has been missing the past couple of months.
They may never know it, but my new co-workers just might have saved me-- not only from drowning in work, but from slipping away from the healthy habits I need to maintain.
