Transition

Sometimes, I think about this year more as a metamorphosis and less as a makeover.

Because, at the end, I'm still me, inside.
I've changed, but I'm still me.
I've grown, but I'm still me.

Makeover implies there was something inherently wrong with me that needed to change or be made over.

But, you see, at the core of who I am, is someone who I'd always been.
And that person didn't need to change so much as she just needed to appear.

Be let out.
I wonder if the caterpillar, as it eats itself into a glutinous cocoon, I wonder if it realizes that even though it will emerge as a butterfly, it's still who it had always been.
Awesome.
Mesmerizing.
Awe-inspring.
One of God's creatures.
Loved.

It may have taken a year of NON glutinous eating, but I figured it out.

(And, my episode of Extreme Weight Loss Airs THIS TUESDAY NIGHT, JULY, 9th, 2013 @ 8|7c on ABC.  Set those DVRs, alarms, get ready to watch Hulu in the am.  Tweet.  Facebook.  Yell it from the rooftops.  Love you for it.  You can also watch my episode with me - here in Boston.  Send me a message and I'll send you the dets.)
