New motivator

Sunday, September 22, 2013

I do not like that picture. The one that shows up beside my name when I post stuff on SP. (Yes, that one up there.)

I liked it when it was taken, when I had lost 35 pounds. The first time. But having lost 92, then gained 60 back, it's a reminder of that slide backward. Yet I'm using it, since it's got to be what I look like (minus the longer hair). I need to keep remembering that.

And so it's motivating me to keep at it, so I can put the next picture up, the one from when I had lost 50 pounds. I like that one better, though it's not where I want to be either. I have to lose 15 more pounds after that until I get to the pictures I start to like!

I could take another one. I might. But I'm going to keep that one on there, until it's history again.

But hey, I'm going DOWN, not up! Lost 3.4 pounds my first week. First weeks are always higher, as you lose water (I lost about 1% water, according to my scale). Lost an inch off my waist and hips and half an inch off my bust. Yay. I knew my pants were fitting better.

On to week two!!

    Good job on your first week. I know I've said this before, but I'm really happy you are blogging again.

    You know that you can do it! Sometimes that is half the battle.

    You will do it again!

    Best of luck to you. You may have gained but you relieved that you were going the wrong direction and corrected it. It sounds like your back on track. Best of luck to you on your journey. emoticon

    I never thought about using older pictures on the way back down - that's a really neat idea for a motivator! I know you'll get there in no time. :)
