Then I realized that my body, the same body, that had gotten me through so much, the same body that gets me up every day and the one that carried my son.
The same one that helps me to love and nurture other people: I had to start loving that same body even at 300 pounds. I needed to realize that by me loving it enough, for instance, by me turning off the negative self talk, by me forgiving myself for the weight gain, it would be the step in the right direction. And as a result, it would be the only way I was going to conquer and win at starting my weight loss journey. As well as being successful at changing my lifestyle.
