Snow Day #2

Tuesday, January 29, 2013

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 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 emoticon .
