I really want the Fantastic Four to show up in film properly. Ottawa is hosting the American VP.

Mutant Diet Phase 10 Day 60
I have an attitude problem.

I read somewhere that ingrained ways of thinking are damn difficult to remove. Self-deprecation goes way, way back. As far as I can tell, dislodging old ways of thinking requires continuous conscious effort and manually inserting positive or (at least) neutral, compassionate thoughts.

The further I dig into the diet/fitness process that more raw the old memories and traumas become. It’s hard to share this, but as I was huffing and puffing over the Burrard Bridge, a friend was encouraging me to try running again. As I pondered this – i.e. how to decline gracefully – I recalled quite vividly the feelings I had when forced in grade 7 gym class to run around Glenview Senior Public. I was fat, allergic to everything, wheezing, and certain I was the subject of mocking. I sure was disgusted with myself.

Back then I didn’t know what to do. Even at my age, I have so many tools to deal with the physical challenges. I feel really sorry for 13-year-old Rob. I wish there was more I could do to help him.
