This is going to be a quick blog, I think. I'm writing because it is my SC activity for the day. I wasn't going to do it, but I like to do what I'm told (mostly).
My motivation for getting healthy is twofold. On paper, I keep mentioning the fact that I want to lose weight and exercise, so that I can set a good example for my patients. This is true, but in the long run, I don't think it would stop me from sliding back into old habits.
The true and insightful reason, is, that I want to look in the mirror and love what I see. I haven't ever really loved myself. I have a hard time taking compliments, and don't like being the center of attention, apparently even to myself! I'm still working on looking at myself in the mirror and accepting what I see there. I'm sure it will slowly change; I can see glimmers of what is to come.
