What a fun morning I've had rummaging through my drawers and closet, ripping one shirt off after another - to try on another. Eureka! I discovered a whole other wardrobe - skirts, pants and dresses with which I have had a cordial separation. But they never went away - just into hiding.
I could never imagined how positively uplifted I would feel - what a difference a few pounds could make. I've been paying close attention to what I put into my mouth and moving my body more for almost two months now, and the changes have been slow but steady. My body is about 13 pounds lighter but the best part of all is not having to take a deep breath before zipping up my pants, or not having my buttons straining to stay done up, and not having to guess where to put my belt. My MIA waistline has made a comeback!
The layers I had carrying around made me a stranger in my own body. Now as I shed the excess, I am feeling lighter, burning brighter and most of all, I'm making my way back to my authentic self, both physically and spiritually.
