I've had so much positive feedback on my picture of the scale - people have repeatedly called me "brave". I wish I were full of courage.
My picture on the blog is a nod towards my "bravado". And my inability to complete things.
Instead of drawing a line in the sand, I've carved a line in bedrock.
By involving my friends, people I know will hold me accountable, coach me on when I get discouraged, I've added an insurance policy to weight loss. It's not like going to the Weight Watchers meetings, where I can simply stop going. I have people who know my real struggles, and will no doubt call me on it if I don't continue this journey towards optimum health. I certainly hope you won't be afraid to reach out and pat me on the back or slap me upside the head, depending on the situation.
So I just wanted to say that YOU make me brave. That I can't do this without YOU. God has provided YOU to push me to success. YOU deserve the credit here.
