Today, I was unpacking some old boxes we found and we ran across some old picture books that we had been making back when our daughter was turning 13 years old. That is 10 years ago come August 20th. To my astonishment, there I was in bold, brightness in all of my "glory" of weight.......365 lbs! Along in the same box, I had some old Weight Watcher records I'd kept during all my "attempts" to lose my extra pounds, planning on "trying again" to use the helpers to try and try again to lose. I realize now that my absolute determination did not begin until this time on March 2009 when I began my present journey to where I am today. I guess it does go to show that you really have to be determined and to fight the fight of your life in order to really accomplish anything worthwhile. We can still fail at times due to our human side, but the determination will always remain in our heart and soul. I am not going to claim that weight in my present journey as I obviously wasn't willing to change until I kept weighing my 350 lbs for years. Then when I started in March 2009 my heart, soul and mind were ready.
I'm just going to enjoy thinking in my mind that I have actually lost in my lifetime a total of 217 lbs, not just the 202 lbs. Where will I go from here? Only God knows! We shall see!
P.S. When my daughter can help me, I will post some of the pictures on my page.
