I mountain bike cycle now, have been for a year, I am losing weight steadily, yes I was morbidly obese, but now I am almost not obese anymore.
Last week Michael and I took part in our first race.
He took this picture of me.

That is a very flattering photo of me.

If this is true, I am not so fat anymore.
This is me a year ago:

I know I have come a long way but that beast will always be inside me. The one that looks in the mirror and sees a monster.
I don't blame media, skinny photoshopped models or anything else. This is internal this is my own inner demon.
When I look in the mirror tomorrow hopefully I will see perspective again and be able to say:
Hey I look good today.
