Starting my picture diary....

Wednesday, February 06, 2013

There are few Sparkers who have mentioned to take pictures of oneself while on one's Sparkpeople journey.
At first I was opposed to the idea. But then I realized the reason why...I didn't want to see myself as others do because I always thought I looked better than I really did. When the scales say one thing, my mind tells me something else...and I continued on a path of an unhealthy life style.
I shut my mind off to what I saw below my chin.
Therefore what one doesn't see, one does not acknowledge.

But, how long can one deceive themselves? It's been a lifetime...but now, for whatever time I have left...I am going to be deep down honest with myself.

This one was taken at our local track last Aug 74th birthdate.

The next two were taken today.

I realize that I feel better than I look.
So how much better will I feel when I am happy with the way I look?
A lot, I am hoping. I've done it.
I will continue to keep a visual record over the coming months.

    We are all going to be saying the same thing....I hope I look half as good at the same age. My mom looked pretty good till this year 79 but after a car accident last year she now walks bent with a walker.
You really look great.

    Lyn, you look GREAT! I agree with the other posters here, you definitely do not look to be in your mid 70's and you have a beautiful straight carriage!
If I get brave enough, I'll do the same pictures one day. But, I look every bit my age, 78 this summer, yikes!
Congrats girl, you're doing great!

    Ditto all the comments already made! You'll be glad to have "before" or "along-the-way" pics when you get to your goals! emoticon

    Great idea! I like the way you're carrying yourself in the current photos. And: you sure don't look 74!
