Ever have a song change your life? Well, maybe not your entire life, but how you look at certain things? This is the song that made me stop boo-hooing about weight loss and body image and self worth and the whole shebang. I saw Mary J. Blige perform this song 10 years ago (!) on the Grammys and the sentiment just burned into me. There's me and there's the weight. The weight doesn't define me, and if I'm not happy with the size I'm at, I need to do more work. Sometimes I do the work, sometimes I don't. Simple as that.
Right now, I'm doing the work.
