One year ago today I started my new life

One year ago today I had my guts rearranged and my life rearranged at the same time.

 Surgery

I look back at that girl from a year ago and I can hardly remember her anymore.

The girl I am today is SO MUCH MORE FULL OF LIFE than before.

I feel better.

I look better (but that, believe it or not, is not as important as I thought it would be)

I am SO MUCH HAPPIER.

Now comes the challenge.

Keeping this train going.

Maintaining.

Building life-long habits.

Staying motivated.

But you know what?

I’m ready.

Bring it on.

The new “me” can handle it.

  1. I am filled with admiration for what you have achieved this year! I think you’ve done a great job – and it must be a motivation to continue.
    I agree with Alexa; the other day there was a gorgeous photo on your blog, of you and your girls. I commented then that it was a picture of 3 lovely ladies – and this new photo is also so pretty!
    Well done Lois and keep up the good work (I hope we’re here to give you a bit of encouragement, should you find yourself at a sticky patch)!

  2. Lizzie,
    Thank you so much. It does mean a lot to me that you ladies can see (and applaud) the changes I’ve gone through. It is so awesome to have an international cheering squad and it encourages me to keep going on the days I feel like wallowing in self-pity.
    The past year has been so incredible… in ways I could’ve never imagined before the surgery. I am almost afraid to imagine how great things can STILL BECOME because they are so great now…I am a very lucky girl.
