First Post...A New Beginning!!!

Wow!  This is a new venture for 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!  


  1. Hello my beautiful classmate,

    I can't tell you enough how much I admire your will and your resolve to change.
    I just want you to remember to be gentle with yourself. As you know change is never easy..and it is quite usually a trial and error process.
    While Perfecto can be harsh there are beautiful sides to it to. :) Make sure you change only what you are unhappy with.

  2. Your blog is beautiful. I support your goals and I can't wait to see what you add next. I hope that you are successful in your goals and perhaps with your blog. I wish I could read just 1 book, but I will definitely look up to you if you even read 3 let alone 10.
