My life has changed in the fact that I'm happy with myself. There are still "improvements" that I'd like to see, but that's age for you. I've lost 40 lbs and I love the size that I am. I can eat, in moderation, and still maintain. I'm in sizes that I'm comfortable with and I even can wear some of my daughters' clothes.

One downer is that my body is still changing due to age. The skin is losing elasticity and my butt is flatter, but that's gravity and age. I guess I could do some squats and see if that helps, but I walk a lot and add hills as needed.

Overall, I'm content. It took a while to get here, but it was worth the trip! emoticon
