I’m not the woman I used to be. I’m certain that’s a good thing. After years of being unhappy with me – but not unhappy enough to do something about it – I started the year, not with a resolution to be ignored, but with the determination to make small changes in my life and try to be a better version to me.

Small changes snowball. Each week a new change sparked a new interest and a new way of making my way through the world.

10 months later I’m no longer obese. I’m no longer overweight. For the first time in over a decade I’m “normal”.

The new me has a new wardrobe and a new do. That’s right. I’ve cut off my hair. Two feet of it was lying on various hair stylists floors (I had 12 in cut off at a time).

The new me is less afraid. Except for heights. I’m still terrified of heights! But I do things I previously thought myself incapable of. And I’m inordinately proud of me.

I’m still a hermit. As an introvert I’ll probably always be a hermit. I’m ok with that.

I still have a long way to go to reach my health and fitness goals but I no longer think of them as impossible. I’m a whole new me. Hope you learn to like who I’ve become.

  1. Being happy with yourself makes a world of difference.

    The new you is the old you just better!! What’s not to love.

  2. I loved you before…now I’m glad YOU love you!

  3. I’m glad you are so happy with yourself now. It does make a difference in your life. Discovering Buffy and Joss (I knew Firefly already) was probably the biggest catalyst in my life – I have done so many things since then that I would not have believed, including standing up in front of 200 people to MC CSTS each year!

    Interestingly, my impressions of you when we met a year and a half ago was that you were “bubbly and outgoing”. Doesn’t mean you’re not an introvert (I’m one myself) but that was how you came across to me. *hugs*
