Dear Dad,

If you were here, I would do better. I'd call more. I'd visit more. I'd listen to all of your stories no matter how many times I'd already heard them. I'd ask more questions about the boy you were and the man you became. I'd let you know that you were the single biggest influence on my life. I'd let you know that if you were proud of me, you should also have been proud of yourself because you are the reason that I am who I am. I'd let you know that I love you and that I miss you every day. I miss you so much.

Have some oatmeal!

I've been having oatmeal with nuts and raisins for breakfast every day for the past week and a half. I've been counting calories with the Lose It! app on my phone. To date, I've lost almost 7 lbs.

Yesterday I went off the rails a bit. I had a doctor's appointment, skipped breakfast, was hungry all day, yadda, yadda, yadda. But I'm going to make my oatmeal right now...so that's alright.

I feel that I've turned a corner. Whether I actually have or not, remains to be seen.

I'll keep you posted :)
