This is Baby Girl. There are many like Her but this One is Mine.
And that’s why her first soccer game ever is on her Daddy’s blog.
There’s something else here though. She had to fight to get that ball. She had to be aggressive and push hard to get what she wanted.
And sometimes you need to be more aggressive about getting what You want.
The well-meaning Husband or friends who’ve seen you try and try to get the weight off. They tell you not to worry about it, “you look fine”… But you know you don’t.
You look and feel anything but…. “fine”.
So you may have to be more aggressive.
You may have to join a program. Without anyone’s approval or permission. Without any discussion.
They’ll know when you tell them. When you show them. When you’ve lost so much weight your clothes are hanging off you. When they say “You look so much smaller, different, happier. What have you been doing?” Then you can tell them.
It’s your life. You’re living it. Not them.
Sometimes you have to fight.
Baby Girl is only 5 and she knows this. And maybe you need to know this too.
