Follow-ups and a meme

Thank you for all the kind messages yesterday. Your support has meant so much, and I don’t say that nearly often enough.

V., I’m definitely shooting for the 100. If I never get there, I’m okay with that, but this close to it (4.2 pounds), I’ve got to go for it. :)

Miss Merry Mary tagged me with this meme. I’m not so good at these things, but it’s interesting to think about:

What’s something you’d love to say to your younger selves of 2, 5, 10, and 15 years ago? (Doesn’t necessarily have to be the same thing each time.)

2 years ago:
I was trying to get this fitness thing going (again), struggling, struggling.
“Stay on the treadmill. You won’t always be stuck at 1.8 miles per hour.”

5 years ago:
Thanks to a toxic-type friend, I wasn’t feeling so good being me.
“What you do is not who you are. You have value.”

10 years ago:
I picked up a copy of Anne Lamott’s Bird by Bird.
“This book will change your life. You have a writer inside you. Get out of her way.”

15 years ago:
I had lost 40 pounds, but after getting frustrated with a plateau (at 170, for crying out loud), I was slowly putting weight back on.
“You don’t have to be thin. Focus on healthy.”

Well, that was fun. :)

I’m not tagging anyone. If you want to play, let me know where to find your answers.
