Down 30 Pounds, Still Starving ... But Overjoyed

Last week, I gained for the first time in a long time and I had to reflect on why that was. Perhaps it is because it's the first time in the whole year of this transformation that I'm truly happy with myself and my life.

I am immensely blessed. The joy and security that comes with knowing that someone "is in your corner" cannot be expressed, especially since it's been so long since I've felt this way.

This man is incredible. He is taking me to Maui for my birthday and  to Boston to meet his family in September for his sister's wedding. For three weeks, he was traveling and I was in a daze. I craved talking to him and connecting with him, even though we were on opposite coasts.

These last few months been an interesting time of reflection for me because I didn't think finding someone so awesome who "gets me" was possible, but with God ... all things are possible.

I'm not beating myself over 1.8 lbs gained, because I've gained so much more than that -  a best friend, a partner in crime, someone who tells me I'm beautiful without an ounce of makeup on, a supporter and but at the end of the day, love.

To love and to be loved is the greatest gift you can give AND receive.

Have a great weekend everyone!
