The past 6 months have given me something to be extremely grateful for, a new life. I have lost a total of 102lbs so far and I feel like an entirely new person. I have more energy and overall I am happier. Looking back at old pictures I feel very ashamed of my weight; how could I have let it get so bad. The cycle just kept going and going and I continued to grow. It's pretty depressing to think about, but that life is behind me.
It's an odd feeling being happy with who you see in the mirror but I look forward to getting used to that feeling. Yesterday was Thanksgiving and I have to say it was one of the best days we have had in the NE in a long time. We were surrounded by friends, children, laughter, conversation, and warm love. I am so thankful that we have made some real friends up here as we miss our TX family and friends like crazy. In a few days Noah, Millie and I will be making our trip home. While I am not looking forward to the drive or being away from Nick for 2 weeks; I am looking forward to seeking Kryssy get married and visiting with family and friends.
I am thankful.
