Body dysmorphia....it's getting better!

I'm 9 months out, lost around 90 pounds since my first consult...for the last few months I couldn't figure out what was my size or if I would be able to fit in between those two tables at the restaurant. Losing so much and so quickly kind of made me lose my internal compass.
I spent most of October in Indonesia (Bali). They have the best spas and I did a lot of massages...(it's really cheap). Mostly lymphatic drainage. The result has been amazing! It's the best way to reconnect mind and body. It did help also to shed some of the water retention...the weather is still hot over there...and to give some care to my tired muscles, I did walk lot.
I do feel a huge difference now, I can "see" my size and I was able to squeeze into small spaces recently without even thinking twice about it. It's a big improvement.
For those who think they can't afford massages, try to get in touch with a massage school. When I lived in AZ I used to go to Phoenix College, they had a waiting list but a massage was only 20$.
