I knew I would not meander any on my way home.
What I also thought is how it was little more than 1 year ago that I was carrying an extra 30 pounds on my body. Carrying those bags was a good reminder as to how my weight weighed me down both literally and figuratively. Before I started on this journey, it was just plain hard to move my body. I had no stamina and little strength. That is not the case anymore as you all know. But that reminder is important and profound. We weigh down our bodies both physically and emotionally by dragging around those extra pounds. Each and every day. Take care of yourself. Move more. Eat less. I am worth it. You are worth it.
Thank-you, Julie, for hosting this virtual 5KM!
