The Catalyst

03 Dec

For a long time I’ve been fooling myself into thinking that even though I was heavy I carried it well.  I’m pretty good at fooling myself but this was pushing it.

Last year my whole family went to Myrtle Beach and after driving all night we arrived but found we couldn’t get into the room for a couple hours.  We were hot and tired and just had to wait around.

I fell asleep in my mom’s wheelchair and my brother took a picture of me.  I didn’t know about it at the time and months later he had the picture enlarged and framed.  It is without a doubt the worst picture of me ever taken (including the Halloween picture of me as Boy George).

I love this picture.  In my right hand is a video camera but at first glance it looks like a tin cup, pathetic.

This picture has forced me to look in the mirror.  The guy in the picture doesn’t carry his weight well.  In fact he looks downright unhealthy.

I’m grateful to my brother for taking this picture.  I’m going to get rid of this excess weight and get healthy.  I deserve better.

I’ve printed out a bunch of copies of this photo and taped them everywhere.  They are my motivation.
