A picture made me cry

Thursday, September 27, 2012

So today, I ran across this picture of my daughter and I last Halloween. It made me cry:

What makes this so sad to me, is I remember my husband posting that pic on FB and thinking "At least I don't look too fat!" Talk about denial!

Here's a shot from a few weeks ago in Seattle:

I know I still have a long way to go. But the 62# that are gone have already made a huge difference in how I feel about myself, my energy level, and what activities I'm able to do!

I hope I can look back in another year and look at the Seattle Picture and think "Wow... I've come a long way since last year".

But today I'm going to give myself a pat on the back for those 62#, and stop attacking myself for the 60+ lbs I have left to lose.
