No BEFORE - No AFTER - Only DURING
- POSTED ON: Apr 05, 2017


The number on the scale is only a number.

Only just a number.
It’s not a “Before”.
It’s not an “After”.

Getting that number to a certain set of digits is not an “After”. There is no “After” – happily ever or otherwise. There is only today. Just today – “During”.

There’s no point in associating “After” with a number.  Losing weight doesn’t mean you no longer struggle with your weight.  It's important to understand that. I
’ve lost more than 50% of my highest bodyweight, and have maintained that weight loss for more than 10 years, but I still struggle with my food, my weight, and myself every single day.

My “Before” pictures (which I choose to keep private) are ME.  The pictures on this website are ME.

I’ve had People tell me they don’t recognize the woman in my “Before” pictures, but she is me. The fat ME is not an abomination. Don’t congratulate me on no longer being HER; I still am HER.  You can say that I look better,  but actually, I just look different. "Better" is a matter of personal taste, or personal judgment. That “fat” ME wasn’t ugly, or a poor, piteous person. She’s just ME, and she’s still standing right here, only thinner.

There. Is. No. After.
 
There will never be a pot of gold at the end of the weight-loss rainbow because that rainbow is endless. 

There is Today. There is Now.
There is DURING.  It's called Life.
