Gratitude Journal – Day 22 – My new body…

Well, today is the day that I have looked forward to for a while – I have officially lost 100 pounds. I knew this day would come, but it has been a very slow 2 months after losing so quickly for the first 6 months. Today I feel great, and I can fit into my daughters jeans… what a concept! She passed them down to me a few weeks ago after she lost weight, and I can’t believe they fit! I still have 30 more pounds to lose, but of course I am in no hurry. I know that it will happen, as I hardly eat any food and I am exercising like mad! I have to do double-takes when I walk by a mirror, because I don’t recognize myself sometimes. There are a lot of adjustments and changes that have been going on while my body has shrunk, and it’s really weird. The downside is that my wrinkles now show – so I have aged a little at the same time! I am just now getting used to my new body – a smaller, bonier version of me, like I was 22 years ago… and for that… I am grateful!
