This past weekend I was able to experience something that surprised and warmed my heart, my 20 year HS reunion.
For many that may be a chance to celebrate career accomplishments, family successes or educational pursuits. For me, it was a sea of hugs and smiles and joys and sorrows (i have a face that says tell me everything!). I wasn't worried about my food or my sanity, I was just there to enjoy and be.
Being in my skin is not always comfortable because of the pounds, but I have been doing so much to get healthy and stay that way I was able to do a lot more than I even realized possible.
The old apprehensions on appearance and physical perfection have melded into a peace of mind that comes from the confidence I've gained in my strength and endurance, physically. They also manifest mentally and that is remarkable!!
I am grateful to have tools at my disposal which are helping me on my path and am glad to have anyone along for the journey.
