It's a joy to be at a point in my life where I feel comfortable with my being. Keyword here: being. I am NOT yet comfortable with my body. I do, however, love my body. It's miraculous that I was born with everything where it's supposed to be. I appreciate all that my body does for me and all that I've accomplished with it. So far, we've shared in a beautiful journey.

But I've come to a point where I'm exasperated that my body can't always keep up with what I'd like to do. I get winded a little too easily and need to sit down a bit more often than I'd like. I tend to be over-dramatic in my mannerisms and facial expressions, and my chunky frame doesn't seem to fit that personality trait.

There are reasons beyond the physical that I want to lose weight. Environmentalism, sustainability, and repurposing are important to me. Fat hippies just seem to contradict all that those movements stand for. It's hard to repurpose a cute dress when you have to make it larger rather than smaller. Environmentalists usually frown on the processed foods I put in my body.

In short, weight loss will help me align my values (being) with physical presence (body). That sounds like new age fluff, but I think it's an important to acknowledge that fact.
