Positive Milestones

Sunday, February 24, 2013

OK, this is my second try at this today, so I'm going to make it short and sweet : )

I realized today that I am tired of my weight loss milestones being associated with negative stressful situations such as "what I weighed when I started this stressful job," or "what I weighed before my husband lost his job," etc.

This time I am going to celebrate joyful milestones such as "what I weighed at my daughter's wedding," or "what I weighed when we first started dating."

To that end, here are some pictures of me at my children's weddings:

About 180 lbs

175 lbs (I am here again now)

165 lbs - my next 10 lb goal

I'll have to scan and add a pic or two from my own wedding since we used "old school" photography back then LOL! (about 150 lbs)

    What a great way to approach goal-setting! Rather than looking into the hopeful, but vague future, work backwards to the reacquire the self you knew yourself to once be! I like it!! emoticon emoticon

  lovely idea, yes, it's true we do think of the stressful parts, but the happy ones are much better but take some effort, to point the lens in another direction.

Lovely pics. Great!!! Oh happy DAY emoticon

    You are not defined by your weight. The joy of happy memories outweigh the thought of the sad. Dwell on the good and let the bad go; they are not worth remembering! You have a great future ahead of you. In order to walk in the fullness of it you will need to forget the past and move on into the future. No one can walk a straight line while looking backwards. You will get off course very quickly. So, keep your eyes on the prize and walk towards it!

    Love it! I have to get a scanner one day because I too have the old school photographs. Can't wait to see what your other milestone pics/occasions will look like.
