Seeing Myself Through The Eyes Of The Future

Wednesday, November 30, 2011

Time, New Years Eve, 2012

I fly down the stairs with ease, my emotions are raging as I get ready for the time of my life.
Jerry is taking me to a family reunion where I will get to proudly show off my new me. It has been ages since I saw some of them and I was making the scale scream at over 300 pounds. But now, I have dropped into onederland and it feels so good. I have bounce to my step! Hard to believe I was on a walker in 2011.
Food is no longer what I live for but is used as fuel to propel my body. It still does call out my name but all I have to do is remember how easy it was to get out of bed or get dressed by myself. Then I always look in the mirror. At first I wonder who that person is? But then I recognize myself as the strong vibrant person I am. Do I detect some muscle in my upper arms, Yes I do see it.
I am dressed in a new black dress with nylons and heels. CAN YOU BELIEVE IT? YES I CAN, SOMEDAY IT WILL HAPPEN. And I will be healthy and fit, enjoying life once again, riding a bike on the boardwalk, taking a stroll with my hubby and Dusty. Breathing normal and not sitting down every other minute. YES, ONE DAY SOON!

This Blog has ben written to fulfill my challenge assignment #3 Love being a Dawg!

    GAIL, I ALSO LOVED YOUR BLOG AND IT'S VERY CLEVER AND WELL WRITTEN. I ALSO HAVE JUST ABOUT THE SAME DREAM AND FEEL LIKE WE BOTH CAN MAKE IT HAPPEN BY THE END OF NEXT YEAR OR SOONER. YOU HAVE A VISION AND QUEST OF WHAT YOU WANT TO FEEL AND BE LIKE SOON. I KNOW YOUR DREAM WILL BECOME A REALITY AS YOU CONTINUE TO MAKE GREAT PROGRESS. WE ALL HAVE OUR UPS AND DOWNS BUT IN SPITE OF WHAT LIFE BRINGS IT ALL IS DOABLE AND I BELIEVE IN YOU!!
