A victory of epic proportions

Today I realized that, for the first time in my life that I can remember, it has become more important to me to be the person I am than to be thin. I am letting go, in stages, of shame. I claim myself, my emotional, expressive, round, creative, messy, dimpled, philosophical self. This is a victory whose proportions I can’t fully see, let alone describe completely. I am glad to be me.
