There’s an obesity epidemic, and I’m part of it. I walked into the Hematologist’s office and the first thing the nurse did was weigh me. Weigh me!

It’s been over eleven months now, and I’ve never felt so close to my true identity. Like the tips of my fingers rest on my pulse, I know exactly who I am. I couldn’t always say that. I’m a social drinker and considerably responsible, save the time in college when my best friend and I let my [...]
