life in and around NYC is insane

Thursday, October 20, 2016


I think one of the reasons my friend's medical situation has me so rattled is purely a selfish one.

Of course I am worried for her, I see her suffering, I heard the despair and despondency in her voice.  And I'm trying so hard to be supportive and upbeat and positive. 

But there's something else.

She's 10 years older than I am, morbidly obese, diabetic, and dealing with the results of ignoring her weight and her disease.

Looking at her, I see my future. 

A future I do not want.

And then I remind myself about the changes I've made.  How I'm eating healthier. How I have discovered a love of physical fitness. 

That I have lost almost  70 pounds.

I still have another 60-65 pounds to go until my goal weight.

But I feel strong and healthy.

I like this feeling.

I feel for both you and your friend. We both know how difficult it is to fight an addiction to food.
