Esmé told me last week that I was fat.
I knew that. Yet, because of the context of the situation, I took it to heart more deeply.
Accordingly, I've given up on elevators (at least for the first 3 floors, and maybe 4 -- haven't yet decided) in favor of using the stairs. I might also make other changes, but I'm going to see how well I do with just this one change first.
The power of a woman. Awesome.
