When your children go to look for photographs of you, what will they find? How many times have you said "I'll get my photo taken with my children when I lose the 20 pounds I want to lose". How many years has it been since you've said that? You say it year after year. Soon enough, your children will go off to college, they'll get married, they'll move away. The photos you wanted to take after you lost the 20 pounds never happened. It always got pushed off.
I say all of this because I know it's true. As a child and teenager, I remember wanting my mother to take photos with me and my brothers. I wanted to see her hugging us and playing with us. She always wanted to lose 20 pounds. She always said she was too fat. Too ugly. But I didn't care. My mother passed suddenly on November 17, 2013. When I went to look for photographs of her once she was gone, what did I find? I found three. THREE. At the time, I was 34 years old. Three photos in 34 years because she felt too fat...too ugly, it wasn't important, she wasn't ready. One of them was taken when I was about 3. The other two were taken at my first wedding in 2004.
