Feeling a peaceful journey today
Saturday, August 18, 2012
This current phase of my lifetime weight loss journey has gone on for about 11 years now, and it's not over yet. I have dropped 75 pounds so far and have about another 100 to go. That doesn't bother me very much anymore, not like it used to, anyway. When I started out AGAIN to lose 100 pounds, as in the past, I thought I wanted it gone YESTERDAY. But this time it's different. This time it's more of an experiential, educational trip than ever before. At my age I am bringing a lifetime of experience to the table, and am only doing it for me.i just want to feel good and be healthy. I have no one to prove anything to anymore, and don't need anyone's approval except for my Lord and myself. I was never taught to love or approve of myself, but I've learned to over the years, and it's not just talk. I walk the talk these days, LOL, from my wheelchair! But that's OK. I'm OK with the wheelchair, too. I've learned to be alone when necessary, and to get along making the best of things. Today I feel like I have a lot of peace and forgiveness in my heart and who knows? I may need a lot of it in the days to come! You never know! I think the drastic drop in temperature has done a lot to make me feel better today. I'm feeling cool and comfortable, and that goes a long way towards peacefulness for me!
