The pic below was taken yesterday by a friend who was actually taking a picture of my son, I'm just in the background. I cropped just me because if this wasn't my motivation to get healthy before, it is now!
Yes it's blurry and out of focus, but I can still see "me". I feel like I look the same as 15lbs ago... but I FEEL soooooo much lighter, tinier, and better looking (of course!) than when I started. I mean, I am AWESOME, I don't know WHY I don't look like Scarlett Johansson in this picture, because, seriously, we could be identical twins... :D hehe! Since I've started taking doing-something-about-my-healt
h seriously, like, since April or May, my self-esteem is probably higher than it's ever been, or at least in a long time. I *shouldn't* let pics like this get me down, but I feel like for all my hard work, why can't I look like a supah star already?! So, I need to focus on the results I can FEEL and not worry about what I still look like in pics. It's a drag, man... :(
In other news, I totally felt like a rock star this weekend by continuing to work on my son's growth chart and starting AND finishing a fabric book for him (rock stars sew, right?).
