Time Somebody Told Me...

I am in a writing project, and I saw this poem.  I wanted to share it with you guys, as it relates to my journey of finding out who I am after losing all this weight....

Time Somebody Told Me

Time Somebody Told Me
That I am lovely, good and real
That I am beautiful inside
If they only knew
How that would make me feel

Time Somebody Told Me
That my mind is quick, sharp
And full of wit
That I should keep on trying
And never quit.

Time Somebody Told Me
How they loved and needed me
How my smile is filled with hope
And my spirit sets them free
How my eyes shine, full of light
How good they feel when they hug me tight.

Time Somebody Told Me

So, I had a talk with myself
Just me, nobody else
'cause it was time
Somebody Told Me

(Quantedius Hall from You Hear Me?  Edited by Betsy Franco)

If you are going to lose weight, regardless of how, the mental battle is by far the toughest.  I wish I could say that I've arrived, but there are many days that are much tougher than others.  I think it is also important to have people in your court.  My husband, father, and best friend Wendy have been my biggest champions.
