I don't mean, "WOW!!" in the excited giddy way (although I sometimes am), I mean, "Wow..." in the hippie/amazed/gratified and reflective way.
Wow. This really works - this really works, and I've been almost afraid to acknowledge or believe that.
Wow. I've only been here four months now, but I'm stronger, I'm down a few pounds, I've got actual muscles you can see, I found my hip bones and my collar bone (they were still right where I last saw them decades ago!), I understand things I didn't understand before, and I feel different...brighter, somehow.
Wow. I'm following through on a promise to myself. I'm not just talking the talk, but I'm walking it.
Wow. Other people really do know how I feel - more than that, they VERBALIZE how I feel. I'm new to social media - don't have a cell phone that does anything but connect me to another phone, and I don't participate in Facebook, etc. But HERE I'm part of a diverse community whose members share the goals of better health and supporting others.
Amazing what I've been given, when (I thought) I came here "just" to lose weight. Thank you, everyone, for helping to give me the gift of myself.
