Tonight, I had a revelation.
I need to lose weight. I have known this for a long time. I'm not at my happiest weight, I'm not at my healthiest weight, and to be honest, I can't afford to throw away all my old clothes and buy slightly bigger ones.
But suddenly I thought about that phrase. I need to lose weight. *I* need to lose weight. There is no one else on this planet who needs me to lose weight. There is no one else whose life will be impacted by my weight, or rather, there is no one else's life who should be impacted. THIS INCLUDES YOU, MOM.
I need to lose weight for me, not a single other person. If someone thinks that their life would be impacted by my weight, fuck them to hell, and they don't deserve the time of day.
