Not because the scale was three pounds lighter today. Your children love you because you show them that you love them unconditionally, you tell them bed time stories until they nod off to sleep, and you are present at all their events. Not because you wear the same size jeans you did in high school.

Being healthy is important, but it’s also important to remember to not let it consume you. At the end of the day, people won’t remember how much you weighed, they will remember the memories you created with them and the way you made them feel.

I hope you are enjoying this beautiful fall day with your loved ones.
Your friend,
