I am currently, hands down, in the most healthy relationship of my life. And I am not just counting romantic relationships. I mean out of all my friendships and family relationships this one is the best. I have found a person who makes me better in almost every capacity and for that I feel very lucky.
I have always been a firm believer that a person's most important relationship, however, is with themselves.
I guess that is my long-winded way saying: today I joined a diet program via an app online. This doesn't seem like a big deal, I know. But to me it is huge because it is representative of a change I want to make on the inside.
Like a lot of people, I want to be skinnier.
I realize that when I say that, it's not really what I mean. What I mean is: I want to be healthier, happier, more accepted, more comfortable in my own skin. And frankly, who knows if going on a diet will do any of those things for me. Honestly, probably not.
But I figure it's a place I want to improve in my life anyway, and I am eager to see what kind of side effects it ends up having. I plan to journal through it all, here on KindMind, and would love some support. I am sharing this with all of you to maybe foster some warm fuzzies as I do something I don't often do FOR MYSELF; and that is really try.
Today is day one. I am eating MUCH fewer calories now, especially because the holidays just ended.
And guess what: I feel really fucking hungry.
