Man I’ve loved spending time with you the last few months.
I feel all safe and cozy wrapped in your cushion. You protect me from the world, insulated and separate.
You make no demands on me, all you request is that I have another piece of chocolate … one more chip … one more spoon of whatever that is with butter and salt.
We’re such a good team, you and I. I love giving you what you want.
I’ve needed you, I’ve needed your warmth and your familiarity in this time when I’m finding my way.
There’s always a “but” and not just our big butt.
It’s a new year, and I need to ask for your help.
My spirit inside your form is asking for something. Pushing for change. Demanding me to dream and to drag you along with me.
Beloved Fat Suit, my spirit tells me we need to change. It tells me we are the caterpillar – fuzzy and cute and content to sit and eat our food all day long.
It tells me that we need to create our cocoon – our safe haven – and become a butterfly.
Change won’t be easy, we’re not accustomed to actual WORK. Perseverance we understand.
So slow and steady and sure – we can do this.
Together we can take what we have created and transform into a Suit of Strength.
You can do it. I think there are lots of us in the boat, especially after the holidays.
I brought my work clothes with me to Dallas & am realizing what a different size I was from the last time I wore these clothes in September. Blech.

What great pictures.
Me and my suit are still in the excuses stage….mostly on the topic of child care during exercise. My new year may start in July when the oldest (and hardest to take to gym childcare) starts full day 1st grade. I can wait 6 more months right?
Me too, Dawn. Me too! I wish you tons and tons of luck! You can do it. 🙂

Dude. Viva La Hawtalucion! I will be with you in mind, if not in body. I am going to need a friend for my own Kevin, Leroy, and the posse they seemed to have picked up over this pregnancy.
You can do it!
