So. I am embarking on what promises to be a shiteous journey of major changes.
I will need all the encouraging words I can get, so my request to anybody here is that if you don't have anything supportive to say, please don't comment. I know a lot of my friends will tell me that "you look great" or "you are being hard on yourself", but neither of those are true anymore. I may have a fabulous new hair colour, but I can't deny that my body has changed a lot in the last few years, and not for the better.
The only thing that I can guarantee is that the next few months are going to be hard, and I am not looking forward to the struggle ahead. That is probably a defeatist attitude, isn't it ... gonna have to work on that too, I guess.
