It's Not a Race
Tuesday, May 03, 2011
After my little tantrum about losing weight so slow, have come to realize that I am not in a race, and to slow down and enjoy the benefits that I have gained since I started my journey, I just changed my spark page and I added some photos that I had, there is a photo of me and my DD in 2009 when we went to NYC this was me at my heaviest weight. I have not looked at that photo since I uploaded it to my shutterfly account. due to the fact that I hated my self in this photo, yes I looked at it cuz my DD is so beautiful with her smile and it always makes me happy, but me.. looking at my self I never wanted to. then I uploaded a new self shot photo that I took when I was in Boston just a couple of weeks ago. on the beach very windy and tide high. I got to say when put these two photos up together and looked at them I said "oh wow" I have come a long way. and you know I am proud of it and I feel so much better, I look so much better beside happier. and you know if you told me that it will take as long as it is going to take to lose the rest of the weight, then I am willing, so many of you commented on my blog that loosing it slower, will help me to keep it off longer and at least all this time that I was working out I was not Gaining the weight.how true I do not even want to think how much huger I would of been if I gained 80 vs. loosing 80 lbs. ugg. so.. glad I got that off chest and glad I had alot of you who brought me back down to earth.. and to realize that this is not a race.
