looking in the mirror

Friday, February 14, 2014

Today I was trying on a new out fit I had gotten in the mail. As I looked at myself I was reminded of the quote above, There are so many things I have let go of to become the person I am today. I unloaded Ben & Jerry's from my suit case. I knew that they were not my best friend.........but my worst enemy as they helped make me fat. I also ended my love affair with M&M's as they served me no purpose other than to make me miserable. I gave up drinking as God tapped me on the shoulder and said "I have a better way" and I found Jesus. Through therapy I unloaded an abusive childhood and bad marriage. So now packing around my suit case is a lot lighter......60 lbs. to be exact as that is how much weight I lost. I say 60 lbs. because I ate my way and drank my way to that weight. I ate and drank due to that abusive childhood plus bad marriage. I am so thankful to God for all of his help. I am also thankful for Dennis being around for all of this. He's helped unload some of my suitcase. So now I feel pounds lighter.....

    emoticon emoticon That is an excellent way to look at it and I am so proud of you for making it to where you want to be and for having someone there with you to support you. Congratulations for all you have given up, for all you have lost and more important for all you have gained - your life back.
