Today I learned that Starbucks loves me as much as I love them....
But in all seriousness... did you notice the size of this cup? Yep, that's right. It's a tall. Most people who know me well, know that I'm a venti type girl... I really love my coffee. But I've recently discovered that a tall is three points if I save with the skim and splurge with the real syrup.
And did you notice that I just said "points"? That's right, I'm doing Weight Watchers. And although there are days like today, "Cashew Chicken Night," that only happen once a year... and where I didn't write down everything I ate. (The first time in two weeks.) I'm trying really hard to start loving myself. Now, I know that some people may say if you love yourself then you'd learn to accept the weight you're at and realize that you're beautiful the way God created you. But I don't think this is how God created me, I think I've created the mess I'm in on my own. And I also believe that's because I haven't loved myself enough to take the time and care necessary to keep myself healthy.
Let's take a look. This is Jesse and I a little over 7 years ago... our engagement photo. A couple of years ago, a friend saw this photo and asked me who these people were. (That would have only been about 5 years after it was taken.) Totally frustrating!
