For the first time ...
Friday, October 02, 2009
I run a Day Care. Yesterday, I had the kids in the backyard, they were playing and having fun. I was on my way to the other side of the yard to give my Yellow Lab Daytona some love - and I saw my reflection in the sliding glass door. I looked at myself for a second ... a strange voice in my head asked "Is that me?" I continued to Daytona's kennel and gave him some love. A few minutes later I decided to look again to make sure I wasn't losing my grasp on reality. I almost started crying ... I couldn't believe that was me. For the first time I could see I was slimming down. I am starting to see my pre-Riley figure. Everyone has been so kind and complementary, but I seriously thought everyone was just encouraging me and cheering me on. It is hard for me to accept compliments - especially because I never really believed them. I can see it now ... I have really come a long way. I look 10Xs better than I did - not so long ago.
Thank you for giving me your time and appreciation ... I am not sure I always deserve it, but I am always grateful. SP and everyone here has changed my life.
