Today my husband’s family and I celebrated the life of my husband’s great aunt. She was an amazing, happy, vibrant woman and I am so honored to have met her before she passed away suddenly from a stroke. There were over 100 people at her memorial which is a testament to her impact on this earth.
I confess that it made me look at myself, the people around me that I love and how fragile life really is. My life has been so focused on weight loss this past year that I’ve been living and breathing Points Plus, numbers on the scale, jean size and inches.
Don’t get me wrong! I don’t regret my journey at all! But today allowed me to step back and realize that I’m not perfect. I will make mistakes. I need to forgive myself for the last 5 weeks of self-sabotage. And remind myself why I’m REALLY doing all this…
To be healthy and live a long full life with the people I love.
RIP Great Aunt Geri. xoxo
