Old photo


Thursday, January 23, 2014

I found an old photo while de-cluttering my apartment. It was taken at a Company Holiday party in December 2011.



Those parties were one of the rare occasions when I'd get in front of a camera. Today I'm glad I did, because it is one more motivator for never going back.

After a heart-to-heart with my BFF in March 2013, I started watching what I ate, joined the gym a month later, and came back to SparkPeople.


By December 2013, I'd lost 60 lbs. I am feeling much, much better.



What has really helped has been making small changes, one small step at a time. I still have good days and bad days, but the good ones far outnumber the bad. When I stumble, I pick myself back up and press on.

The journey isn't over yet! Gotta emoticon emoticon

    I'm so glad you have the old photos, I don't have that many and wish I did. You're doing great.

Somehow I got unsubscribed from your blogs, so now I'm catching up. Hate it when that happens, have had it happen to another friend.

    when I stumble upon old photos of me I don't even recognize myself. I then get a sudden burst of confidence and it's spurs me on. Hope it does the same for you.

Congratulations, you are officially a Bombshell now!!!

    That's right, the journey isn't over. There is no finish line on becoming the healthiest you can be. You just gotta work at it every single day and maintain all your success.

You are doing wonderfully!

    What a difference. Notice how in the old picture you are trying to cover up yourself in the wrap, in the new picture you look great and you know it, you are like "I have nothing to hide"! emoticon emoticon
