This picture should have done it.. but it took a year

Thursday, November 04, 2010

for me to finally start losing the weight and working out again. Yes I did have another surgery between that picture and actually wasn't released from the previous surgery, but I should have started adjusting my eating then. I didn't. I probably put another ten pounds on after this? Who knows, I lost count. I didn't have a scale. I wasn't happy. Well I was in this picture, it was my daughter's graduation party, but still... why did I wait.

May 2009

October 2009 and then to October 2010

and now we are here

July 2010

but still not there yet, because I want to be better than here

October 2005

Sometimes it takes awhile to get going and sometimes it never happens. I'm glad I didn't wait any more. I'm not content where I'm at, I want to get further down, but I'm not going to let a plateau stop me. The weights are my friend, I will continue to go see them on a regular basis. I really have a son, but he refuses to take pictures with me. UGH.

I should know better than to write a blog at 7 am... I just am not with it. Starting rambling and thinking after I posted it the first time.

    Hey Girl!

    I've looked at your picutures and you have come a long way - you look great!

    I've recently become of member of SPARK and I love it. I don't really have many close friends to work out with - but I think that this team environment is going help me.

    I've had a rocky past as well, with my family being far away from me as well as having self confidence issues stemming from when I was a child and my father abusing me. But what gets me through each day and keep pressing on is -- I count my blessings! I have a wonderful Husband, two great kids, my health is good now and I'm able to work and bring in some money to help support the household. My husband and I work together to raise our kids to the best of our ability. We try not to put too much pressure on ourselves. We just keep plugging along and it seems to work.

    In the past - I thought about giving up but there is always something that keeps you going -- you just need to find it.

    Keep up the great work!

    I think you look gorgeous in all these pics, to be honest! :-) But I know there's nothing like *feeling* confident in your own skin. You'll get there. Keep up the good work!

    LOL, I have a son but he dislikes pictures. That's why you'll mostly just see pictures of my daughter. She loves the camera. LOL! Anyway, you look fantastic!
