As a child I visited the Wisconsin Dells with my family. We took the traditional boat trip to the sandstone formations, and walked through a narrow opening called Fat Man’s Misery. I remember that I was worried about getting stuck in the rock (thanks, Mr. Tour Guide!). I wasn’t anywhere near big enough to wedge myself, but my mental image was.
So it is, after a lifetime of being the “big girl”, that Fat Girl’s Misery is a formal portrait…until today. Today I have agreed, stepped forward when asked, volunteered to have my portrait done. Here’s the kicker: it’s for publication! The folks at Scale Down, the doctor-supervised diet program, have asked me to write up my story and have my portrait done at their expense. Here is the address for the national program: http://www.hmrprogram.com. It is a research-supported, well documented program that has helped me loose that 120 pounds and keep it off.
I’ll post the picture when I have my copy and my story. It was easier to write than I feared. I just considered it another blog post!
