"that girl"

A strange thing happened to me tonight.  After a long day at work, I came home to a lovely dinner that my husband had made.  Not only did he make chicken breast with an orange bourbon reduction but he plated it with barbequed peaches and a spinach pecan salad.  The thing that was strange was that I didn't bat an eyelash at the small salad plate he so nicely arranged it on...in fact, I felt appreciative and loved his thoughtfulness.  Very, very strange change in food attitude.  It wasn't that long ago that a small plate of food  for dinner after a long day with no lunch would be unheard of...my gosh...I suddenly realized that I really am changing.  It's not just the physical changes and the numbers on the scale changing but it's really ME that's changing.  My relationship with food is changing in a way that only a year ago I would have never dreamed possible.  I am still in awe.  Could this really be true.  I think it is...I am becoming "that girl"...  I am so grateful to have found this path.  I feel like I am reclaiming my life.

That is so damn sweet! Oh...and I LOVE grilled peaches. I was just talkign about this the other day with a coworker. He asked me if I thought I would need the band forever. I said yes...probably so. Not that I feel like I would totally go back to all my bad habits, but bc it helps.

I eat healthier, cook healthier, etc...NOW...and not bc I have to but bc I want to. Thanks to the band.

Yipee! Thank you for your comments...it was getting lonely around here.
Sandy Lee you made me laugh with your request to borrow my husband. I am sure he'd be happy to cook for you. You may wish to wait a bit as I just bought him the Everyday Italian cookbook by Giada (can't remember her last name but she's hot, and I figured it would inspire my husband to cook even more).
