You can't forget how far you have come!

Title says it all. Saturday I was getting together our tax receipts and such. At the same time I also was taking a 4 week or so progress photo for my community Biggest Loser competition. The photo is just for me not for the actual competition. Didn't really notice much of a difference from January 17th but, then I started to look at my original photo that I posted on Spark. OH MY! Holy Cow! Now for those of you who haven't kept tabs on me, a little less than a year ago I had gotten into the 190's, yeah I entered Onederland.....and through emotional mind sabotage I practically stopped sparkin' and gained a bit of it back. But then again what happened Saturday was that I saw that photo in color on my computer where I had a starting weight of 277.6!

I may be teetering 220 right now but I know next week that if I keep this up I will surely enough get below that 200 mark again and enter Onederland. Now I guess I am more competitive than I thought but this Biggest Loser comp that I entered has instilled that original fire that I had for such a long time. My competitive drive has overridden my emotional tie to food, at least for a huge percentage. Not completely gone but I am in the right mind frame!
Take those photos, find that drive, stay motivated!

    YAY! Glad to hear that you are doing so well. I got myself kicked out of Onederland with some bad habits this fall, but found my way back last week (just barely at 199, lol). Now that I am going in the right direction I am excited to see the weight coming off -feeling stronger every day. Congratulations for reigniting your spark and doing so well!
