It took me quite a while into my weight loss process to realize that I defined myself by my weight. Even the title of this website reflects this. While reading other weight-loss blogs (mostly the successful ones), I came to the realization that allowing your weight to define who you are makes you not believe that change is possible, because fat is who you are.
Realizing that my body weight does not define me, allows me to feel more comfortable with what I do, and turn the tables, and having me define my weight. It’ll take time to get to 175 lbs, but I will do it.
I will keep the name “The Fat Guy” for the blog, as a reminder of how I defined myself for so long.
