Weekly blogging is difficult to keep up between work and school, so I thought I might pop-in monthly to keep a record of maintenance.
Maintenance. I have stayed within a few pounds of 132 since May. That is crazy- I have bounced between 155-175 for the last ten years, so 132 is pretty freaking remarkable. I still tell people about SP all the time.
I think I wanted to post here today because my sister-in-law posted a few very unflattering pictures of me today. This is a common tale, I know, but it bummed me out. I should look at the pictures like "Wow- super duper, I've come a long way," but I just feel embarrassed by them. They aren't terrible, but bad enough to remove a few tags, lol. Ugh. So I'm going to combat my crappy feelings by posting pictures that I am proud of.
In September, I turned 28:
I thought I'd be "fat" forever, but I'm healthier this birthday than last, which makes me very happy.
I went to a luau and felt pretty in a bright orange dress:
My old "favorite" color was black because it "hid" all my imperfections.
I went to Waimea Bay with my sister-in-law, and actually allowed Mike to take a picture:
This has to be the only year on this planet I have allowed such a thing.
In October, I'm going to keep all this up. It's hard to cook healthy or take a walk after working for 10-12 hours and looking forward to reading a few articles or writing a paper for school, but the alternative- fast food, namely- results in poor health, black clothing, and hiding from cameras again. No thanks.
Love and luck to you all this month (and forevah!),
