9 months into my new life I feel like a different girl. My priorities have shifted. My vision of my life has shifted. Today I am celebrating my new life.
As I sit here and think about how far I have come and how much I have learned I am happy. I believe there are many moments in our lives we transform and become a different version of our previous self. This is definitely one of those moments for me. Over the last 9 months I have gone through so many different emotions but the one that I am still working my way through is, how much of my former self will or can I recover? I would like to think much more and being patient and vigilant with my food is the key. But what if this is it, what if this is who I am today. Am I happy with her right where she is? I am and I would never go back. I can not lie, I do pray and hope for more improvement, it is what drives me everyday to be better and work harder. I can’t imagine ever getting to a spot where I am done working on myself and completely satisfied, that would be boring to me.
So, 9 months in so many of my symptoms are gone or lessened tremendously. I looked back at my personal journal I started 16 days after being diagnosed and was amazed at myself then and now. Just my sheer commitment to this whole food journey and to take control of a situation that could have easily taken hold of me.
So many reach out to asking how to start or what to do first……I always say, just pick one thing you can do today and continue doing it. each day adding something, big or small, and being a better version of yourself today than you were yesterday. That is not to say I am perfect and have not had a few mis steps but I always do my very best any given day.
9 months….I am a new me…..from the inside out and it feels pretty damn awesome:)
