It’s not insane to believe that once you lose weight, life gets better.
For years, I’ve heard stories from those who have shed pounds, recharged their lives, never felt better, and speak so confidently that once the weight was gone, they became the person they were meant to be: a thin and happy one. I do not doubt their happiness when they share their story but I also don’t believe that by losing weight, they have some superior knowledge about happiness that us heavier folk don’t.
How do I know this? Because I’ve been fat and I’ve been thinner. And I’ve been at my happiest, heavier.
