Pictures tell the story

Thursday, July 07, 2011

I can't believe how great I feel. I didn't realize how down I was about my body until now. Having lost 28 lbs. I can finally see the difference. Its strange to me how other people can notice you are losing weight before you notice it yourself. Sure, my clothes are baggie and things that were too small before fit again, but last night I saw pictures of myself from November of last year, and it finally dawned on me how much weight I have lost. Looking in the mirror every day I didn't notice it, but looking at these pictures really made me realize how far I have come. I didn't think I would be emotional about this experience, but I have to admit, I actually cried last night when I realized just how far I have come and how proud I am of myself. I definitely feel like I have the strength and courage to get to my ultimate goal in this journey. I've said before that I don't care how long it takes, but now I mean it even more than before. I feel so much better about myself - body, mind and spirit. This is a journey that I want to continue for me. I love waking up feeling good about myself and having a sense of accomplishment every single day. All I can say is WOW!
