I will smile when I see myself in the mirror.
I will MEAN IT when I smile at myself in the mirror.
I will love the days I have been given to fight this battle against obesity.
I will continue to count calories.
I will one day let myself eat as I should, no calorie counting, lots of veggies.
I will continue to love almost every vegetable I've come across. Beets, I don't know if we're there yet.
I will run.
I will sweat.
I will laugh and cry and shake my fist with anger at "those days" that made me sad.
I will eat my fruits and vegetables, just like my mama told me to.
I will get guns. GUNS MAN! (biceps, for all those who fear my shooting ability).
I will take one step forward.
I will look behind me to appreciate where I've come.
I will continue. Walking, running, crawling if need be.
I will go on.
