no weigh-in to report

My leader didn't bring her scale to the open house. But I am feeling like this is all getting easier. I think that it is partly because I'm really starting to see that losing weight is not fundamentally connected to my worthiness as a human being, that it won't fix all my problems. It will fix one problem, not wearing the size clothes I want to wear. That's really it. I'm basically healthy, mobile, and fit, even if my weight doesn't fall into some kind of ideal BMI range. The only thing that really gets easier as I get thinner is eating less -- probably because my caloric needs are going down.

Mainly I have other, bigger things to worry about right now. Like my dissertation, the bills, and my messy house, just for starters. So I'm off to go deal with some of those things.
