I like this new lifestyle. Some of the early excitement has worn off, but the deep contentment of living a healthy life is still there. I don't need to impress anyone with great numbers for my weight loss, or present a stunning figure - no one cares about a stunning figure on a 62 year old unless she's a movie star. What I care about now is the fact that I am not thinking about food all the time and when I do its about what kind of healthy food do I want for this meal. I have found new foods that I never thought I would try - hummus, greek yogurt, spaghetti squash, ... I am exercising - even strength training which I hated when I first started this journey 3 months ago. My clothes are comfortable on me. I was wearing tight 24's and now am getting into my old 20's and they are comfortable. I have new energy and new enthusiasm for life. It may not be exciting but it sure is rewarding.
