one inch, one pound, one step at a time. I am losing parts of myself and I haven't felt so free in years!!! The wash of empowerment that comes over me as I reclaim my body, my life, my sense of Self after 5 years of being immersed in BABIES is exhilarating. I love and need my children so much it Hurts- but it also feels so good to be reclaiming my sense of Self after so many years in a row of creating, birthing, and nursing my sons..... Gabriel is turning 3 in March and in many ways I feel like it is a celebration for me as well as him- a celebration of Freedom (and I am thrilled I am doing it a few sizes smaller). Some days it is almost surreal to feel Myself emerging from these insulated layers of fat cells as I reshape and recreate the inner Me I have missed recognizing in the mirror. The neat part is that I am not finding the same Me I was 6 years ago- it is a New Me....it is a stronger, fuller, more vibrant, more life challenged Me. A more complete Me. An inner Warrior Princess I never even knew I could be. A Momma Tiger..... growing stronger and firmer not just for myself, but for the protection and modeling of vigor for my kids. What an amazing journey self-transformation can be!!!!
