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.
I'm a (part-time) working mom to two beautiful girls, Bonsie (7) and Berio (5) and wife to a pretty cool dude. I started this blog to chronicle my journey to lose 100 lbs in the hopes that someday what I have to say here will help someone else. Did I lose the weight? Maybe I did and maybe I didn't. But I did realize along the way that being overweight wasn't the problem. It was a symptom.
