"Funny how you can feel skinny one day, and the next.."

"Funny how you can feel skinny one day, and the next day like a busted can of biscuits."

HA HA HA. This has had my hubby and I rolling all week. Saw it on facebook. Though, the sad thing...IT IS SOOOO TRUE.

Celebrated our 14th wedding anniversary, and got our pictures taken at a novelty place. You pick a theme: western, Victorian, Civil War, Pirate, and gansters. 14 years ago we did western, soooo we did it this year...

My, how bloated, old, and tired we look. It was like that comedian (Jim Gaffigan) meme says "Have you ever seen a picture of yourself, and it ruins your day?" That is what happened. After a wonderful day at the beach, and being just googly eyed with each other...then WHAM...what a downer.

Hubby says it just means "now we can see where we really need work. So let's get on the ball, and retake the pictures again."

I bought a frame for it before we went to get it done. I haven't even framed it, it's so bad. LOL. sigh. Hubby is right. I know. It's one of those "aha" moments. Sure we've known we needed to work on ourselves. Been on sparkpeople, duh. I'm not blind or stupid, and I've seen pictures of myself before. I know I'm overweight. I really do. I just don't like looking at them.

I suppose that means, I actually need to WORK. I actually need to follow through, and stick with it. I need to focus, and remember how important it really is to loose the weight, get healthy, strong, and LIVE. I can't "sloth" around anymore.

    Being Healthy means you'll be able to celebrate the next 40 anniversaries together, why not?
    But you can't hide from who you are, and shouldn't. Love who you are today and know you can make yourself more amazing, right now, from this choice on. With your husband or on your own, you can make the journey.
    But versus hide from the picture, take one every week, in the same outfit, watch your body change, motivate yourself to be a person you want to see in that frame.
    Brushing aside the evil truth just makes it harder to deal with when its time to look at the reality.

    Good luck.

    14 years congrats. That is a huge accomplishment. As for the rest you see it and can now start to really do something about it. Its not a bad picture it just that you see where you wish to improve.

    Good, you got some motivation! Now focus on all the positive, strong, smart things you do and build on them!! You can do it. I know it. Having both of you working in the same direction is awesome. I do it without my hubby on board. It can be done, but together you are stronger.

    Do you live anywhere near Highland City and the Fort Frazier Trail? If so, join our Sunday morning bicycling group. We've got several couples and it is lots of fun!! Best wishes for an awesome year and a picture you just love on your next anniversary!

    Yes, you do have to work. The good news is you and your husband can do it together. The photo is a wake up call. Following a eating and exercise plan isn't just about appearance. It's about improving and maintaining your health so you have many more happy anniversaries. emoticon
