Finding the Fit is my attempt to force myself to get into shape by going public with my struggle to lose weight.
I’ve fought with the number on the scale since 5th grade when the gym teacher at my school announced we had to line up to get measured, weighed and have our backs checked for scoliosis. For a girl who was a little chunky (as my brother liked to call me) this was pure hell. There was no preparing for it, I had to own the number (106, in case you’re interested) because all the jocks we’re going to remind me of it for the rest of the school year.
I’ve gained and lost hundreds of pounds over the years and yet the number on the scale always creeps up and up.
This is my attempt at getting the weight off and keeping it off.
