When I started this project, I hoped it would force me to start caring for myself, something I haven’t done a lot of over the years. Despite my depression, and despite my chronic pain, and despite my lifelong belief that I am not worthy, I would try to care for myself.
So I am walking more, and spending time in the garden when I can, and eating properly. And it is showing … in 10 weeks, I have lost 10lbs. To be at a healthy weight, I have another 18lbs to lose if I want to be at a healthy BMI, but that doesn’t seem insurmountable now. Not if I care about myself.
