The dangers were clear–
Excess skin, exhaustion, and depression.
Starvation mode–something I got close to hitting,
The dangers were clear.
My friends were supportive.
My lover…less so.
I knew there were problems,
But I knew I would be different–
I had faith in myself to make it.
Weight loss is something I can attain.
Three pounds, more than what I expected
In only a few days.
I can do this,
I know I can–
But it feels so good.
I’m more than
With the things
I have managed to do.
Even if my darling man
Doesn’t think I have anything to lose–
