I'm not obese

I have made the first huge milestone. My fancy fat measuring scale has indicated that I am below the threshold of obesity three times in a row now. It took a long time, a really long time. Next major goal is to not be overweight. This time I'm going to be cheating somewhat, as I went back on ADD medication this morning for the first time in years. ADD medications tend to have weight loss side effects. That is something that I will not mind. Hopefully I won't mind the other effects either. Psychologically it is hard to accept that many people will see me as a better person under the effects of a mind altering drug, or that my successes are not ones I would have achieved on my own. I think that what I have managed to do in the last year has done a lot to put my mind at ease about this. I got a job with lots of distractions, and managed to keep it without ADD medication. I moved to Portland, made friends, cured my own obesity. I learned to love myself, and feel safe letting other people see a lot of the real me.

I expect there to be changes. Big changes in fact. I remember how many things were easier for me on ADD drugs. That combined with the confidence, skills, and endurance I have built up over the last year should be a powerful combination.
