looking for the right word......

Saturday, November 17, 2012

i just listened to a spark people radio episode...the host talked about "releasing" weight. i kinda like that. i don't like the term "losing" weight, because i haven't LOST anything....i've changed how i deal with food and exercise, and those behaviors have enabled me to DROP 105 lbs. i didn't misplace anything, and i don't want to find it. release is still is a bit passive for me, because this journey has been very active and extremely intentional...it's a day-by-day, sometimes minute-by-minute, choice-by-choice path. i'm still looking for the perfect word....release comes close, but it's just not the "one."
what word do you use to describe the changes in your life? emoticon

    i too like the term shedding and I've heard people say they have "let go " of unwanted pounds. VERY interesting blog and I may keep this in mind when stating this in the future !

    I like shedding! Every 7 years all your cells renew themselves so maybe that is what we are doing, renewing ourselves; shedding our skins for a new and fabulous self.

    It was once a part of me, but I'm changing underneath... growing a new me from the inside out. So the outer layer has to slough off.
    Great introspection exercise! Thanks for blogging that thought!
