    How quickly it became old hat

    Woke up today (without an alarm clock, for the life of me I don't understand that one)...

    My feet hit the floor and no aches or "I need to walk a bit to get going..."

    Breathing clearly, seasonal allergies, always worse in the fall for me, gone...

    While shaving realized I hadn't had a nosebleed or even a cold for a year now...

    Ragged cuticles gone, nails perfect, and no chapped hands last winter either...

    Pores clear, skin glowing from a summer at the beach (no burns this year and w/o sunblock)...

    Had my teeth cleaned yesterday, no plaque to speak of and multiple complements from the hygienist...

    A year on the calendar but it is as if the clock has rolled back 30 years. But 30 theoretical years because 30 years ago I was over 300#'s, now down to 160. Scary high blood pressure gone. I've kind of settled in to this new reality as I think is natural but just wanted to take a moment to reflect at how truly amazing the changes have been.

    That is inspiring. Thanks for posting!

    I passed my 6 month PB anniversary this month, and reflected on the same thoughts. In another 6 months it will only be better!

    And just think: this is how life is supposed to feel. All this time it was wrong, and now it's right.

    Frees up a lot of time and energy to GET SHIT DONE, doesn't it?
