More motivation for me

Friday, January 11, 2008

So I was thinking about my pictures recently. I don't know why, but they don't seem to be showing as much progress as I thought I'd been making. Then I started looking at some of my really old pictures.

Let me just say WOW! What the heck was I thinking? They show a LOT of progress! It's almost like my mind isn't ready to start thinking of myself as a skinnier person.

I saw the particular wedding picture of myself and thought "geez, who is that person? What the heck is wrong with her?"

I never realized how much of a mental game this weight loss thing was. I'm amazed every day by how much it takes to be successful, and yet how little all at the same time.

    Everyone that has ever made it to the "I am sexier than thou" level of fitness will say that the mental part is harder than the physical part. Getting up the mental energy often time kills the physical energy.

    Hi, I haven't been to your blog in a while and am really impressed with your progress
Seeing progress is sometimes difficul. Because you and the people around you get used to the way you look and change everyday. Even myself who have lost 35 pounds, have been demotivated because people didn't notice it. Even people I havent seen in a while.
that is why pictures are so important. It really shows us how we look- whether we like it or not - and it does show us the progress we have made. It can be a good motivator.
Keep up the good work.

    I dont think we notice it about ourselfs cause we are our own worst cridics! When I posted my small side by side, I can't tell the difference, but my hubby says he can. Every now and again I will come across a pic though and think "oh my gosh, I was huge" and it makes me feel better!
