40 Days Lighter – Day 19: “Her”story in the Making

 

Tonight, I’m keeping things simple.

 

I saw this image and was reminded that in order for me to become the woman I was created to be, there are parts of my life that can’t go back to the way they used to be.

Tonight my husband congratulated me on my weight loss progress, hard won through more disciplined eating and consistent exercise. He then asked me “What if you kept this up for a year?” Immediately, I became aware that I have no desire to return to my old habits – and promptly responded “This IS my life now!”

This 40 day journey has taken turns that I never expected at the outset, but I am grateful for the changes I can already see, and the ones to come.

My life is history in the making.
