At not quite 50% toward goal...my columnar process is increasingly evident. I am beginning to recognize myself in the mirror again. The changes are remarkable, to me. I am not yet svelte, for sure. Besides...can any woman who is 5 feet tall meet the crieteria of svelte? Long legs, willowy? I am, and will for-most-ever-more, barring frailty, be sturdy. I am well anchored to the earth, flat feet planted firmly in a reality that tends toward the factual.
My leggings are "longer" now, reaching easily and comfortably to my ankles. As they are required to cover less horizontality, they are eager to extend vertically. My waist gently appears. My neck is beginning to emerge again, separating itself from my ears.
