Fat for a reason

While talking with my speaking coach and soon to be co-author of my book. She feels the time for me to make my mark (blogging, speaking) is so very timely. With obesity being such a huge health concern and shows like "Biggest Loser" at the forefront of our minds. She feels that my story is so relevant, inspiring, refreshing.

As I reflected on our conversation, the answer to my life long burning question came to me. Aha! If I wouldn't have lived my life as an obese person, struggled with my identity and self-worth.  I wouldn't be able to share my amazing story, reach people, and change lives. There would be no Farewell Fatso!, motivational speaking, and book. In retrospect, all the pain and struggles make me who I am. I can't even imagine my life any other way.  I'm fat for a reason. Aren't you glad I'm fat?
