Leap of Faith (in Myself)

This week I took a giant leap of faith in myself.  I gave away two huge boxes full of clothes that are now too big for me!  I've lost 26 pounds, and gained a lot of muscle, in the last 5 months.  Always in the past, when my weight has gone up and down, I've kept various sizes of clothes in the attic "just in case" I gain the weight again.  But this time I've already decided that I will not be that size again.  I have committed to this pathway of health and have no intention of letting myself regain all that extra baggage.  In fact, my intention is to lose the rest of it, which means I am a little over half-way there!   I've learned to love the healthy foods that I eat every day, and have absolutely no craving for the stuff I've given up, the sugar, dairy, and white foods that used to be part of most meals.   Woohoo!  I feel good.   Thank you Dr. Mark Hyman for kick-starting all this, and thank you Lily of Farmacopia for telling me how to begin!  And thank you Daniella for being such an outstanding partner/cheerleader and joining me in this adventure.  I am one lucky girl!
