Think Thin

I wasn't going to blog today but sometimes an emotion gets stirred up or an idea springs to life and it's all I can do to type quickly enough to get it all typed up.

"Think thin!" I never did like that phrase. "Nothing tastes as good as thin feels" is even worse. Because I don't know what thin feels like or thinks like but I'm really not all that bothered about it at this moment. Sure "thin" has been a fantasy in the past but it has no place in my now. Vibrant, energetic, strong, healthy, these words are of great worth to me and I'm starting to understand the core of them. I was overwhelmed to tears this morning just walking through the kitchen, I felt light and free. I move without pain now, swiftly with purpose. My body does what I want it to do, no longer rebelling with aching knees, sore cankles, searing low back. Fat was the prison of my own making and now that I've tasted freedom I can't imagine going back.

There are lots of things that feel and taste good, but nothing can compare to "free."


  1. i am so proud of you! You've conquered so much and have come out triumphant. And I also love how you said you're not thinking "thin" but you're experiencing freedom, joy, etc.! That's worth all of the hard work. :) CONGRATS!

  2. You are changing your mindset and that is really the key. It isn't about being thin, it is about you. You are starting to realize some of potential you have for joy without food being the focus. That's fabulous--keep up the good work.

  3. Just always remember that you are not alone. We are with you every step of the way.
    It looks like you are changing your lifestyle, not going on a diet, and that is the only way to go that keeps on keeping on.
    You go girl!
