new competition--who has the worst fat picture??

Thursday, January 28, 2010

What a turnabout--I was always running from the camera or erasing photos my husband took. Hiding behind family members for photos and now--I just got off the phone with my sister (a new sparkster) and we laughed so hard saying let's find out "porkiest fat " photo and post it! let's see who has the worse one (She is DreamofRussia) ..haha--I went through my husband's laptop (he is the keeper of the photos) and found some of's like I am looking for the first time. I'm not looking with disgust (like I use to) I am using eyes of compassion and 'matter of fact eyes.' I am able to because of Sparkpeople! I am able to BELIEVE my life is changing because I am following the program and feeling momentum.
For the first time in my life I feel completely committed and believe I can do it--most importantly, I believe I am worth it.

I just relaized two days ago that I have held a belief that I didn't deserve to be thin. That it was just my lot in life to be "chunky" so I worked at accepting it.
I deserve to be a healthy weight. I deserve to be athletic! everyone does!

I'm loving this journey!

I keep my eye on the prize--being a before and after covergirl :)

    I never did pictures even when I was thin. I'm superstitious. But I look at how far you have come and I want to be like you. I want to persevere and reach my goal but I tend to get on myself for not doing enough even when I know I'm doing all I can. And I have two thin sisters so there is definitely no going to them for encouragement. Its nice to hear that you struggled too and with much more to lose and yet you're succeeding! I definitely want to be like you! emoticon

    We all deserve to be healthy - thin or curvy. But it's a task we have to accomplish ourselves. Taking care of ourselves is something no one else can do. I have my fat picture posted on my Sparkpage and I still look at it and get squeamish. Even though I have a long way to go - I am a long way from there. emoticon
