30 Pounds Ago: Then and Now

Thursday, February 21, 2013


I worried about the impact of my weight on my health.
I didn’t like the way I looked in clothes.
I felt ashamed getting on the scale in my doctor’s office.
I breathed hard doing everyday household chores.
I spent part of my energy every day thinking about how much I weighed.


I enjoy knowing I’m taking good care of my body.
I celebrate great healthy food and cook with my friends & family.
I love picking out clothes and getting dressed every day.
While I know there are no guarantees in life, I feel good knowing I am doing what I can to have a long life and be here for my family.
Whole days and weeks pass when I’ve not thought about my weight.

Bonus “Spins”:

I can do 12 "men's" pushups in a row. Well, really 15 is my personal best!!!

I laugh at myself a lot more and I play hard!
