Believe me, I know the feeling. Longing to strike out to a better place, but going nowhere instead.
Painfully aware of the destination, seemingly chained to the ways things are.
It’s a helpless, hopeless feeling. This weight can be… check that… this weight is an anchor that will pull you down, make you less than you can be.
Even if your friends and family all lovingly accept you just the way you are, you’ll never really and truly accept yourself (at least most of us can’t or won’t).
It’s simple: you can be better, and you know you can be better.
I hope you’ll embrace the idea that you’re on course to a better life. Whatever tools you use… low carb, calorie counting, long-distance running, lap band… whatever the tools, remember that the journey is all about finding a lifestyle that you can live with and start living with it.
It’s time to lift anchor and set sail.
