A long way

So finally I’ve decided that I’ve had enough. I have made every excuse possible to make myself believe that my weight is not my fault. I am wrong. And I admit it. I am massively overweight and I now seriously need to do something because I’ll be 30 soon and it’s not going to be pretty. Also, I keep telling myself that I need a change, well now I’ll just have to get off my relatively skinny ass (relatively skinny when compared to other parts of my body), work those ridiculously thunderous thighs and make something change in myself. Enough of cribbing, crying and eating. Time for some moving!

On the bleakest days you have to keep your eyes onward and upward and on the saddest days you have to leave them open to let them cry. To then let them dry. To give them a chance to wash out the pain in order to see fresh and clear once again.

'Histoire de doña Maria d'Avalos et du duc d'Andria' by Anatole France; illustrated and decorated by Léon Lebègue. Published 1902 by Librairie des bibliophiles, Paris.

Description: Maria D’Avalos was an Italian princess during the later part of the Italian Renaissance. She was married to Carlo Gesualdo, one of the noblest men in Naples and a famous musician. But Maria, neglected by her husband, fell in love with another nobleman, don Fabrizio Carafa, with whom she began a love affair. When her husband found out, he pretended to go on a hunting trip but instead he returned that same night and caught them in the act. He murdered them both in their bed and left their mutilated bodies in front of the palace for everyone to see.
