Several of you asked about my mother-of-the-bride dress. This is the first picture that has come since the wedding of me in it. I’m not standing or even posing, but it shows the dress and captures my JOY in my daughter’s delight.
They say a picture is worth a thousand words.
In this picture I’m completely comfortable with my body in my clothes. Wow. I’m not thinking about trying to hide my double chin or suck in a tummy. I’m just sitting there, looking for my dear husband to escort our beautiful daughter down the aisle–uh, sidewalk.
I’ve told many people that you don’t know what you give up in the area of health until you start getting it back. People say I look and act ten years younger. That’s because I FEEL ten years younger. I’d forgotten what it was like to hop out of a chair or flit across a room. Fifty pounds ago I lumbered. Aches I thought were age related are disappearing as my body is once again active and carrying around a normal amount of weight.
I say all of this because I want YOU to know that change is possible. With good nutritional support, some mental focus, a little exercise, and healthy spiritual and emotional under-girding, life can be different for you, too. The pounds CAN come off. You CAN regain some of what you thought was gone forever.
And since a picture is worth a thousand words I want to remind you that I know what I’m talking about.
A picture is worth a thousand words
Life is different as you regain your health
You, too, can live a BeNew journey

Thank you! I WAS happy. My girl married a man who truly loves her and her day was just what she wanted. Wow. How many times in life can we say that is true? Thank you, Jesus!!
Even more perfect – i hope they have a long and happy life of health and happiness together!
Stunning dress. Glad it all went well 🙂
Thanks so much, Marie. The alterations lady designed the sheer sleeve ’cause I was uncomfortable with wearing it strapless. I love what she did. Looking forward to hearing good news about your upcoming event!
Yes, Things I Love! The day is special, but it’s the lifetime that we’re pulling for! Thank you for your kind wishes. Do you have a blog? I couldn’t find it from your gravatar.
