Life’s all about balance

I’ve had an “on again, off again” relationship with fat all my life, or at least since I hit puberty.

And hail damage.

It’s hard not to eat when all you can think about is being deprived of food.

Both women and men tend to confuse body size with self-worth.

Maybe the gravity that comes with age is taking its toll and you aren’t being as graceful about it as you’d like to be.

But what would life be if you couldn’t indulge every now and then?

Maybe next time I have a reason to go back to the doctor, she’ll tell me I lost a few more pounds so I can balance my life with a few more cookies.

I write about recovery, life, grief, personal responsibility, social issues, and overcoming. Email: allison@moodyoops.com, Blog: https://moodyoops.com/
