Just remember...

Monday, September 02, 2013

When you're upset with how much farther you have to go...
When you think you're never gonna get there...
When you eat tuna instead of the pizza you want, and you're SO not happy about it...

Have a friend remind you of who you used to be...

That's a bit of a difference!

My oldest and dearest friend sent these to me the other day, and I was shocked. I still cannot believe I looked like that! She found these while she was cataloging old photos on her computer and just HAD to share... THANKS LISA!

I will eat tuna, and I will fight until I get to goal, no matter how long that takes, because I will NEVER look like THAT again!

    Great blog. I'm trying to be better about allowing pictures to be taken of me so I can do some comparisons. After a lifetime of avoiding cameras though, it is still a struggle to recognize that I look better, even though I feel better! You look amazing! Thanks for the inspiration!

    That is not even you! I mean - this is hard to describe, but I believe each person has the "real you" inside of them and those old pictures don't show the true person that you are. When I look at the second picture, you're glowing, you look confident, you can see in your eyes... this one shows your REAL you. And that is wonderful!

    What a great reminder! I have the same feelings as you do - I was 2 pounds away from my goal and then had my knee surgery and now I've gained back almost 20 pounds. Frustrating! But I'm on my way back down and am not even CLOSE to what I was before. I have to keep reminding myself.

You are AWESOME and you have done SO well! Keep up the great work and you look FANTASTIC!

Makes passing up that pizza totally worth it, right? WooHoo for Tuna! But we all know it was way more than passing up for pizza in favor of tuna. This is the result of a lot of sacrifice, dedication, discipline, and hardwork! This didn't happen by acciedent and it didn't happen over night! You put in the work and you got the results!

    Stay strong!!! Oh, it's work and don't we know it!!! emoticon because you're not going emoticon there again. You continue to inspire me. Thanks for today's inspiration when I'm seriously in need of some to not only get back on track but stay on track this month.
emoticon reminder a photo can be. I think I've just been inspired to put an old photo on the bathroom mirror to keep me focussed this month. I don't want to go there again ever, ever, ever.....
