Excitement. Before, I was in a rut of a routine and did not realize it. It was the same – work, church, errands and chauffeuring my daughter to her different activities. It wasn’t until I started losing the weight that I realized I wasn’t enjoying anything. Everything was a chore, even the things that were supposed to be fun. Now, I feel myself enjoying things more and am even excited to have plans, to go shopping, to see my friends and even to run errands. It feels like a “weight has been lifted” and literally, it has been. I am not at my goal yet, but for the first time in a long time, I feel excited about where I am and where I’m going. It’s going to be a great 2013!
