A Brand New Me...

My name is Shelly and I have to admit...life has always been interesting, however, the past two years have been especially so...I have been working hard at overcoming my Binge Eating disorder and getting in touch with my feelings as I never have before. At 44, I feel like I am fully coming into myself and I feel more comfortable with me and who I am.

My name is Shelly and I have to admit...life has always been interesting, however, the past two years have been especially so...I have been working hard at overcoming my Binge Eating disorder and getting in touch with my feelings as I never have before. At 44, I feel like I am fully coming into myself and I feel more comfortable with me and who I am.

I have unconsciously hidden so many things from those around me...and most of all, hidden a major part of myself...FROM myself. I have recently discovered the reason for my lackluster 25 year marriage...I am a lesbian. Through counseling and much journaling over the past 2 years, which I started to get through BED, I have discovered my true sexuality...I feel more comfortable in my own skin and way more confident in myself as I have come to realize and accept this within my own heart.

It hasn't been easy...but I know it will be worth it in the end. Soooo...I recently divorced and I am beginning a new relationship with a wonderful woman who I adore and now I understand what true love is...I only hope to let all the things I've learned over the years come out as a strong, beautiful, resilient woman.

It's wonderful to finally be in a love relationship with my Self!!

Thanks for the sunshine. emoticon

I have been up and down, we went away this weekend for a Judy Collins concert in Bellingham WA and stayed to watch Super Bowl at pub. Had a great time but I went off diet Super Bowl day but paid for it big by getting sick all night from spicy food.

So I lost 3 lbs now if I can just keep off!
