This is me slurping down one of my last decadent green matcha fraps for a while. Why? Because on Weight Watchers smart points, this one drink accounts about half of my day’s allowance of what to eat. The picture was taken a few weeks before I decided to commit to eating like a grown up.
I’ve been thinking about it for awhile. But the moment came when I saw the photo, the mother of all photo which I hated because of my arms. I’ve never taken a photo where I could not bare to see my arms. I knew was bulking up while pressing through grief and losing a job a dedicated to which I’ve dedicated much of the last few year of my life. I’ve eaten more chips, crackers and fast food. All the while I thought, “I need to eat like a grown up.”
