First Post...A New Beginning!!!
Wow! This is a new venture for me...my own blog! I'm starting this blog because I believe that writing can be both therapeutic and a vehicle for change. I am currently seeking to undergo many changes in life; hence the title, "The Changing Perfecto." I will let go of my need to "appear" perfect while letting my physical and financial health spiral out of control. I will gain control of the areas of my life that matter the most. This will be my journey. Change is hard. But I am ready. This is my time, finally. I know, I know...I've been saying this for a long time. But I feel it in my spirit that this time is different. Several incidents throughout this past year has reminded and encouraged me that I do NEED to change. I've been warned about my weight by an influential professor, hit rock bottom financially (I'm still techniqually at rock bottom), and I'm currently taking a wonderful counseling class where positive change is encouraged and supported. The truth is...I want to be free. Being fat and owing more than what I possess feels like living in a mental prison. I'm ready to break out!
