habit habit habit

I hardly remember the girl in the before picture, but I don’t want to forget her. I don’t want to forget what it was like to feel like a prisoner in my own body. The pain, the powerlessness to change. Change is slow and getting started is hard, but it’s possible when broken down into tiny manageable habits. If you’ve never struggled with obesity, it’s easy to think you just need to muster up a little discipline and put down the fork, but you’re wrong. It’s so much more complex than that. There’s a reason why 95% of those who lose regain it and it’s not because they’re lazy. We probably judge ourselves more than you because we’ve all been taught that it’s our fault. I’m working really hard to have compassion for myself – then and now –and for those who share the burden of obesity. I wouldn’t wish it on my worst enemy. But it doesn’t make us bad or lazy or stupid, it makes us sick. and I’m sick of a culture that believes otherwise and marginalizes people who are trying and failing despite their other achievements. Sorry to go off on a tangent, but this disconnect in understanding and compassion pains me. I am strong willed and determined and pursue my dreams with vigor, but when it comes to this, if I let my guard down, I’ll be back there in an instant. Seriously, eff obesity, but more than that, eff anyone who doesn’t have compassion for those of us who are up against it. Excuse my language, it’s the only word that feels appropriate this morning. Keep fighting the good fight babes and never give up. Happy Humpday 🐫

The amount of gay in this chapter was off the charts, and we didn't even have a moment between Kurogane and Fai! Could you imagine?? I am so glad you noticed Nokoru sleeping in Suoh's lap, because this is very important for science *flails* but also did I miss something because I'm so used to you calling characters by other names that I legit saw the name "Suoh" and was like, "who the hell is that"? NICK. SINCE WHEN DO YOU CALL MINOR CHARACTERS BY THEIR ACTUAL NAMES. I CANNOT COMPUTE.

OH MAN. I’m so beyond amused that you actually noticed that. That is incredible. 

But FULL DISCLOSURE; I totally had to google Suoh’s name halfway through typing the tags because I legitimately couldn’t remember it. 

More Full Disclosure: I do this often. 

Especially when it comes to minor characters like the Clamp Detectives. I know that one of them is named Nokoru but I can’t for the life of me remember which one that is. And what is the name of the third detective? Who even knows. It’s a mystery of the universe. Literally no-one knows. 

See look now I have to google it halfway through making this post.This is how ridiculous I am. 

HIS NAME IS AKIRA. HIS NAME IS AKIRA AND I READ AND ENTIRE MANGA SERIES WHERE HE WAS THE MAIN CHARACTER AND I STILL DON’T REMEMBER HIS NAME. 

I AM THE WORST.
