In the past 3 1/2 weeks, my world has changed. It has changed for the good. As I look back I wonder what has changed so drastically that I actually see good in things I used to see bad in. But, I realize, my outlook has changed because I am putting myself first.
Since joining WW, I have lost 11.6 lbs, I am feeling healthier and I am feeling more like myself. But, more than that, I am realizing that I am worth taking the time to be me. I have broken out of the feeling that I need to be something for someone else. I don’t have to be anything to anyone but me.
Tomorrow my husband starts a new job and our world as we know it will change forever. I thought I would be devastated at the prospect, but as the day has gotten closer, I can only see positive things. While it was not how we intended it, he has been blessed with the last week and a half off. We have been able to spend some much necessary time together. It has helped me be more confident watching how he has changed from a tired and drained man, to one that is excited to face his new adventure.
I can honestly say that today was the first true day in Virginia where I could say I feel at home. Because of our recent move, we had to find a new church. The one we were going to was not meeting our needs because of the husband’s schedule. While it was not what we intended when we moved, this church has given a new life to us. And today, we stepped forward and were finally able to begin the membership process. It gave us the opportunity to truly believe that we are home.
This past week I gained .8 lbs, but with all of this, that small weight gain is nothing. Happiness is so much more than that number on the scale.
