Of course, I celebrate July 4th with its special meaning, but it is also symbolic for me. I started my lifestyle change on Oct. 13, '08 - Columbus Day, and viewed it as my voyage into a healthier lifestyle adventure. Now, this 4th of July is the start of the second leg of this adventure when I plan to lose this last 20 lbs. by Dec. 09. Sure, it seems so do-able. But my body has been slow, slow, slow with 34 lbs. so far and 3 pant sizes. I view this Independence Day as my celebration of freedom from so many of my past eating behaviors. It's a fabulous feeling.
