Why do I keep doing this? I’m not a masochist nor do I have a strong need for exhibitionism. So, cross those reasons out! I do it for several reasons. The two most important:

First, I do it for me. It is a way to keep my head in the game, so to speak. I want to continue living my life to the fullest – and the surest way to sink back into somnolence is to stop paying attention. I know I am ok no matter what the scale says.  That said, when I am experiencing forward momentum or maintaining I can be sure that I am making good and conscious choices.  But when there is backsliding, I know it is time to put my attention back on my daily choices.

Second, I do it for those who struggle with their own weight or eating issues. There is no need for shame, no need for secrets. Self-acceptance isn’t an easy path for many of us, and it can be a long as well as difficult trek. But it is a path worth taking if we want to fully realize the people we are meant to be. I want that for all of us.
