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.
