There are definitely moments when I look at myself and feel I have not made much progress. Today, in one of those moments, I decided to put those negative thoughts to the test.
I pulled out a photo from earlier this week and initially I started nitpicking my current photo apart, wishing away the budges in my stomach, wondering why exercise had not made that part of my body thin and lean, wondering why my arms were so large after having worked so hard for so long- you know the drill.
But then, I took my current photo and "introduced" it to my "before" photo. Man, what a nice surprise. Seeing these two people together was like seeing two DIFFERENT people, and suddenly I became very proud of the me that I am now.
The effort really has paid off and today I was able to take a step back and appreciate this.
I look forward to introducing my future self to my current self so that she can congratulate this girl on how much work she's done. We're never going back to the "before" person again!
