“Things change so fast sometimes. One moment you could be convinced that you will never achieve your dreams and the next you can see the path leading straight to it. I know how it feels to experience a change like that. Life is a crazy ride that keeps you guessing until the end. Since I haven’t reached the end of my life yet I can’t claim to really know anything magical about it, but I can sure live the way I think is right. At this point I am convinced I am following the right path. Maybe someday the path will change, as things in life have a tendency to do, so I am keeping my eyes open.”

They fit again!

“Today I’m wearing one of the pairs of jeans that I took with me to New Zealand when Dan and I went there for the first time on our honeymoon. Last year when I tried them on and they didn’t fit I thought I would never be able to wear them again. Now that I’m back to my pre-wedding weight they fit again and I feel amazing. About my appearance, at least. I don’t feel so great about my insides right now, but at least my outside looks good. Gotta start somewhere.”
