Today, when I stepped on the scale, I was down to the weight I was before we lost Sweet Baby.
All week, I've been anticipating this milestone, tearing up at the thought of all I've been through and what I've done to get to this milestone. All the emotions have swirled around me all week.
Then, this morning, I stepped on the scale, and I didn't feel this surge of great emotions. I felt grace. I felt peace.
It was a moment of quiet celebration, and a resounding sense of peace.
The number on the scale reflected an internal truth, and it all just felt happily, calmly, right.
I've been diligent in my nutrition, working out, and feeling better every day.
It's fitting that on this day, I finished a project that's been swirling around in my head. Inspiring head wear for working out. Reminders that I'm not punishing my body, I'm honoring it and my Creator in my workouts.
This new health journey isn't about punishing who or where I've been, it's about remembering I was always worth it. Remembering that I am beloved and wonderfully made.
For all that "Sparkle" running down my face while I work out :)
