just when i think i havent done much

Tuesday, July 03, 2012

My daughter showed me video today of our Hawaii vacation 6 years ago. I remember being in so much pain with my knee I could not take enough pain meds to stop it. I was miserable, in pain, fat and depressed. Seeing that today on film really encouraged me.

I have lost a lot of weight

I did get a knee replacement and can walk, not waddle now

I am physically active, happy and fairly energetic.

I have made progress!! When I started, progress not perfection was my motto. I think I gave myself a little too much permission , a little too much leeway.

Now, I am gonna be back to PROGRESS!!

For shock value, here you go....

    WOW! I can't believe that's you! ALWAYS go back and look at old photos. I only have a couple of me at my biggest and I have a copy on the fridge and one in my purse. I see them at the most perfect times too. You know, like going into the freezer ofr ice cream or reaching for my wallet when I'm out and want to get... well... ice cream, lol! You will get there, progress NOT perfection = )
