Yes the kids have yet another snow day, and yet there is no snow. Just icy back roads they claim, which isn't one of mine and I'm on a back road. So bums all of us out. Especially with the thunderstorms. Anyways...thought well I don't want to be up yet anyhow so I'll do another blog. Husband took a pic of me yesterday, and I am so happy with it well kind of. I hate pictures. But I put on the shirt I had on with the last one, I haven't worn this shirt in like 3 months and it is no longer snug on my belly, so proud of myself. Here is before:
and here is 24 pounds down and 4 months later...
I see a difference, not a big one. But it's progress, seeing all my friends some doing photo updates some not...got me to thinking what if I did this for every 20-25 pounds lost. Would I notice. I plan on using this same shirt throughout as long as I can for comparison. But I'm so happy with myself, and he can't even believe the willpower I have. He has been working with me on him quitting smoking, he can only make it through 3/4 of a work day. His bet with me was if I hit 20 pound weight loss he would not have any cigarettes for a whole week. He had 4 months to prepare, so it's kind of funny. He's got a ton more patience than me, and I thought a ton more willpower to control himself and he thought so too. Until I started this journey, now he realizes I may lose my temper or get frustrated with a long day with the 4 kids and my siblings and parents, but in the end I am just as strong as he is. YAY for me....never thought myself to have so much willpower and confidence and patience to just keep going. I still have about 60 pounds to go yet before I am 100% happy, but this is a start. And I wanted to share it. Plus a few more motivational quotes I found. Love all my sparkpeople family, you guys are fantastic and wonderful people.
I love reading them whether on my own blog or someone else's. Always makes me
