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.
