July has been a good month so I wanted to close it out with an official weigh-in. I was greeted with a lovely surprise! It's been a long time since I've seen a "1" as the first number looking back at me from the scale, eleven years to be exact. I'm thrilled, not so much by the exact number, but because of the way I reached it. By saying NO to diets, by listening to my body and treating it with care and respect and by dealing with my "issues" in a responsible, thoughtful manner. Although it is very nice to be in Onederland, it doesn't change the fact that I'm going to continue living the lifestyle of a fit and healthy person so I can continue to become that person.
