I cannot tell you how GOOD that feels!

That's all

I know. I know. It's an incredible feeling. I remember thinking, I just want to feel average and yes - normal. Regular. Nothing more. That's all I need.

Feels better than any of "that" food ever tasted.

I know!! Oh and what about that little wrist bones, the collar bones are awesome too, oh my and the pelvic bones? Aren't bones just the greatest?

Not to hijack the thread, but do you think people who have always been slender "enjoy" their bones as much?

I know what you mean. Exactly what you mean. This is my morning interior monologue:

"YAY! It wasn't all a dream. I'm still a healthy weight. It hasn't ended yet. I didn't blow up like a Macy's Parade Day balloon in the night as I slept. Look, I still have muscles in my quadriceps. Look at all the bones in my feet. I won't have to try on three things this morning before walking out the door & feeling I'm socially acceptable."
