Before Photos (are here!)

Saturday, May 05, 2012

Well, I bit the bullet. It wasn't easy but I took some photos and came to grips with posting them. I tried to post a range of photos, because even though all are from the past week, in some I look bigger than others. I don't want to distort my image as being huge, but also don't want to minimize it by posting only the "better" photos.

There's one that's, oh my god, a real eye opener. I didn't have the heart to put it on the cover of my spark page, but it's in the photos to remind me and keep me honest. I hope to post progress photos along the way. Hope, because I don't want to be presumptuous. I'm still taking this a day at a time. I haven't been fully tested yet. I'm still a spark newbie...naive. All has gone well my first couple of weeks, but life will challenge me at some point, and then we'll see what my spark is made of...I hope and I intend to keep coming back, immediately or as quickly as possible when I do get knocked off or down.

I intend to regain my natural, normal, healthy weight, to be beautiful, more outgoing, and ever more compassionate to the world, especially to others that suffer as we suffer---with body image, food addiction, and self-belief.

    You'll definitely be glad you have those as you continue along the way. I know my first couple months, I couldn't see much change, but now it's boggling to look between the current and the before pictures.

    Yay! Thanks for sharing! I might actually get up the nerve to do some myself. Well, honestly I have them just haven't posted them. ;)

    You're a very beautiful lady! Outside as well as in (from what I know of you so far, anyway)! You are going to be a KNOCKOUT when you're at your goal weight! And you can do it! I'm here for you as are your other SparkPeeps!!

    You have a plan. That is the first step. No one is perfect and we all have slip ups. I know that from experience. But joining a challenge is a great way to hold yourself accountable.
