Thank you for posting this!

I've been in a bit of a slump lately. Reading this helped me to see that it's MY REACTION to things, rather than things themselves.

You've helped me to realize that I can reach my goals if I focus on the right things (my reaction, rather then the fat/food/people themselves).

Thanks!!

I have been a rather depressed, fat, lazy mother.
I have made excuses. Excuses about why I can't. Why I shouldn't. Why I won't.

I was the friendly mom.
The funny mom.
The absent mom.

I was in hiding.
I didn't want to embarrass my kids.
I didn't want to be embarrassed.

I have smart, creative, well-rounded children.

What have I taught them?
To hide?
To give up?

No more.
I would rather them see me struggling and failing and trying again than for them to see me never trying at all.
I want them to know a good life and happiness and comfort is worth fighting for, even when it's difficult.

I SHOULD be embarrassed and ashamed....But NOT because I'm fat. I should be embarrassed and ashamed because I was hiding instead of fighting to change things.
No more.
