Poem: New Beginning

one day at a time

one set
one second
one breath
one bite

it all starts with a moment you decide to change
you decide to live
to not give up on yourself

my weight is a challenge
its physical
its emotional
its mental
its everything
it is the hardest thing I have ever done in my life
yet I keep on going

Today I am choosing to start new
I know this will not be my last do over, my last relapse

this is my first moment to learn who I am
to grow up
to be the woman I want to be
for myself
for ME
this is a moment I am changing
the physical weight is just one part of my journey
what else will change along the way
