The Body Department

I am finding myself increasingly fascinated with the biology of fitness, nutrition, and weight loss.

This reminds me of back when I was pregnant and eager to immerse myself in all things pregnancy. (I had a foot-high stack of pregnancy books on my night table. I lived and breathed pregnancy 24/7.)

Now that I have let go of the shame, guilt, and fear associated with being overweight, my natural curiosity has emerged and I find myself hungering for information to guide me through this new chapter in my life: my fitness journey.

Something major has shifted in my thinking and outlook -- and it feels great.

The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.
