Here I am representing my son's boarding school at a high school fair. I talked to 7th and 8th grade students and their parents about boarding school. I have issues with social anxiety, and I'm an introvert, so I was way out of my comfort zone. Still, I did this. My son is thriving at school. He's so happy. That motivated me to go to the fair. I enjoyed sharing our experiences with people considering boarding school.
After the event, some pictures of it were posted on Facebook. I cropped one of the pictures so I could see myself better. I am disappointed by how large I still am. I have lost 40lbs, and I'm very happy with that, but I still weigh close to 300lbs. I can't see much of a difference in the way I look. That is a bit discouraging. However, I can really feel it. I'm stronger. I really struggle with fatigue, and I'm really tired today, but things are getting better. I just need to manage my expectations.
