In some ways I feel like there was a monkey on my back and it is gone now.

I feel independent and free to dream

I am scared that I may get lonely

I am mourning a loss

I am envisioning a future of some travel and fun

I am sad and will truly miss some people that I believe will fade into the background of my life.

i feel a bit up and down, Momentum yet stalling, Happy yet sad.

Very strange emotions.

    Don't deny yourself your emotions that you feel, let them all out, and then move on.

You sound like a very strong person.

    You'll be surprised at how fast this season will pass. Your 2 beautiful dogs will fill your life with joy, and you'll be so busy getting rid of all the baggage you didn't even know was in your life, time will pass quickly. (Speaking from experience)

    Yes, those emotions sound perfectly normal. You've got a great handle on what's going on and what's going to happen. Some folks are going to fade out of your life that you wish wouldn't ... and some will be a blessing that they do. There will be some moments of loneliness, but you will find new things to fill your life. Do mourn your loss ... this has been the life that you've known for a number of years. Embrace the new life that is yours now. Take your time and learn what is new and yours. You have a lot ahead of you and it will be all that you make it. You're going to be wonderful in your new life.

    As wonderful as it is to lose weight, you do lose things in the process besides just weight! You gain freedom yet you know you can never go back to your old eating habits and who doesn't miss eating all that delicious food in quantities that were way beyond what we should eat. When I go down the chip aisle at the grocery store or the cookie aisle, I don't even thing about putting it in my cart because it isn't good for me but it doesn't mean you don't wish your body was different and you could eat anything and everything you want. In the long run, it will all be worth it.
Keep on pushing! emoticon

    I believe your emotions are perfectly normal for what you are experiencing, if there is such a thing as normal, in life! Keep on keeping on....

Have a great day!
