I really enjoy the 'friendships' here on FS and seeing how other people are managing their challenges. It's great to be able to provide some support and get some in return.

My objective is to have a deficit of calories for the day, even if not much. I find the Fat Secret calculator is very accurate. When I have a deficit, I loose weight. It's as simple as that! There are no health issues related to my weight, and I am happy to plod along with my daily deficit. I am in no rush. Any loss is mostly for image although I also want to have less body to lug around. I wish to walk with a bright step and be able to climb stairs lightly. My rate of weight loss averages about 0.4 lbs per week.

In March 2021, I left my abusive husband and now I am rebuilding my life. The weight loss is part of that journey. I see that adding some lightness to my steps is psychological as much as physical! I have been doing lots of reading about narcissistic/empathic relationships to understand what happened to me. I was trained to cater to narcissists from Day 1 of my life and it is very difficult for me not to fall into that behaviour pattern. I work with a therapist to help me with healing.

Crocuses are my favourite flower. They are one of the first to bloom in the Spring. It always amazes me how delicate they are. However, they can withstand such harsh conditions such as freezing/thawing and even dumps of snow. That takes fortitude! I see them as a metaphor for my life. I am a crocus.
