Begin Again........

Tuesday, June 21, 2011

Begin again is my personal mantra ever since attending a yoga retreat last year. We played this seemingly silly game as a group, where we had to start over fifty times at least to get it right. However, in the end we reached our goal. Something that seemed impossible was possible! I think about this daily and am ready to begin again [yet again emoticon ].

I, like many women, have been on the weight loss/gain ride most of my life. When I was eleven, a boy in my class called me fat and ugly. And so begins the emotional rollercoaster of being a woman. It seemed like I was always thinking about food....enjoying it on moment, then feeling guilty the next.

Through self-discovery, I have made peace with food. It nourishes my body, gives me delight, and brings people together. I love food, but at the same time, it is not my everything like it once was.

I'm trying to lose my last ten pounds, and so I begin again........
