a boost of confidence

The funniest thing has happened to me in the last several weeks. It all has to do with this boost of confidence I've experienced with my weight loss.

Or maybe it's something completely different. Maybe it has to do with my new outlook on life. My realization that I've spent enough time just "going through the motions" and its time I LIVE my life.

Or maybe its a combination of both.

Or maybe, its neither and instead is something completely different.

Whatever the reason for it, something interesting has happened to me.

If you know me at all, then you'll know how hard it is for me to admit the following,so be kind to me.

See, I've become a bit boy crazy. There, I said it.

It seems, you see, that not only am I ready to date again, but I'm actually really and trully enjoying the "hunt".

The flirting with strangers, the checking out random men in random places, the what ifs, "I wonder what his deal is" and "did he just smile at me?"

I'm enjoying it all.

And here, in South Florida this week? I'm really having a ball with the guys.

But mostly, I'm enjoying the fact that after all this time, I am once again comfortable enough in my own skin to do this all over again.

Funny how that works, ain't it?
