March 6th, 2018 Some Perspective
Today: I maintained the integrity of my maintenance calorie budget, I remained refined sugar-free, I met my daily water goal, and I stayed connected with support!
I also received a tremendous outpouring of support concerning last night's blog post. Thank you, thank you--I sincerely appreciate every single comment, message, text, and email. It really helped me process things much better. I needed some perspective!
Losing three brothers in different ways and all at ages way too young is something of a ridiculous long-shot. I think I have a shade or several shades of "survivors guilt." If you were to go back a decade or more, I was most likely on a path to die young. I spent nearly twenty years at 500-pounds and somehow, by the Grace of God, I'm still here. And they're not. It doesn't seem fair for them--and feels overly generous for me.
It's been one of those "busy but good" days. I'm hitting the pillow a little later than I intended, but still earlier than usual for a Tuesday night.
Thank you for reading and your continued support,
