The other day I was reading over some affirmations I wrote in my journal about a year ago. Some of them were things that at the time I never thought would come true but since did. The most significant of these: “I am naturally thin.”
The short version of the story: Every year I give myself a present on my birthday–anything from an expensive pair of boots to a compliment. On my birthday last year (my thirtieth), that gift was that I would officially give up binge eating and dieting–after over ten straight years of it.
And I did.
To my surprise, I lost even more weight since then, so that now, for the first time since high school, I am naturally thin (thin without dieting).
If that was all I had accomplished all year, it would have been a great one.
After Rachel and Matthew had their first child, they had a couple of fights. Well, okay, more than a couple—they fought for over three years. They fought about schedules. They fought about bad habits. They even fought about the lawn mower. And besides actually having their child, it was the best thing that could've happened.
