different facets

Saturday, May 11, 2013

I tend to avoid pictures of myself at my heaviest. Luckily, most are safely hidden in non-digital formats. But there are those few...
This is me then and now.

At my heaviest, I weighed 220lbs. And I had no cheekbones. I've only ever shared that with one person. However, accepting where I am now means recognizing where I came from (talk about purple prose). I lost over 70 lbs through diet and exercise--and, by diet, I mean the healthy lifestyle kind of diet. It worked but it also means I have to keep working at it. I have a slow thyroid, letting myself go means letting it all go. I can't let that happen, not if I want to stay fit and healthy. So here's to getting back to my goal weight and letting go of excuses.

    I avoided the camera like the plague at my highest weight and have very few pictures of me back then. my face looked like a potato. I'm glad I have a few pictures now, to see the difference, and I wish I had measurements from back then too.
