But that would be a really long post. And while all that weight was coming off, life was going on, and continues to go on. So instead of that post, you get this post:
This is my friend Will. I've gotten to know him in the past year through a mutual friend and some mutual interests, and I've had the rare gift of seeing joy stealthily creep into his life. And by not being obsessed with my body, my weight, and with food, I've been more available to build friendships and connections. And that's the most delightful gift of all - by making healthier choices, I've had more room in my life for the kind of spontaneous joy that was captured in this snap. And I look damn good in a green sweater. Pow!
