Day 20 & 21 | three weeks can fly!

I can't believe I've completed three weeks of the My Fit Foods challenge.  Time really flies!  I've felt amazing during this challenge.  I lost 6.5 pounds, and everything fits better.  My stomach is flat, and I feel on top of the world.  It's amazing how slight changes can bring big results.  This is as much about the way I look as it is about the way I feel!  I know the yoga at YogaSport has been a huge contributor as well.  I have a renewed sense of commitment to myself.  I know I'm not getting married on February 15th, and I know it would have been awesome to take advantage of an amazing wedding -- all planned and sponsored for me, but maybe I needed more time to fall in love with myself...or maybe fate wanted to teach me much as I am in control of my actions and attitudes, I am not in control of love.  Love is something that can't be measured or charted.  It just exists and ebbs and the tide.  We cannot trap love.  It's not ours to contain.  We can only give love....we cannot take it or buy it on the shelves.

I just had my first cup of coffee in three weeks, and I avoided the artificial sweetener.  I learned that I didn't need it!  Thank you, My Fit Foods.  I am excited for some yoga and dance tonight.  And, I'm going to have a glass of wine with a girlfriend after I work out.  Just one!  It's been three weeks since I had alcohol, so I'm starting with one...Josh at My Fit Foods said it never works out that way, but I'm going to stick with my plan.  Go say hi to Josh or Jaclyn at My Fit Foods on Lemmon in Dallas.  They're both lovely and amazing.  (Josh is cute, too!)  I stopped in last night to get some food for the next few days.  I don't want to go crazy now that the challenge is over -- in some ways, it's just begun.  I love eating fresh foods...and I love the energy I have.  I'm feeling poised and ready for really good things.

I received an email from a CNN international producer last night....fairly soon, I will have an interview that will reach 260 million homes worldwide.  Love is an international topic!  I've received hundreds of notes from couples who want to get married but cannot afford all of the costs involved.  I want to help each and every couple, and I'm thinking of ways to do that.  My wedding giveaway is for a DFW area couple, but there are so many loving and deserving couples outside this area (and within) with amazing stores and love for each other.  I'm inspired!  I know my prince is out there somewhere.  And I think that giving love is the best way to receive it.

Incidentally, I've had a major flow of emails from guys who want to "get to know me."  Some said they wished they knew I was looking for a groom.  Some are just more likely to write to me now that I'm NOT getting married.  Wedding is like a four letter word for some guys!!!
