Progress photos

Saturday, May 11, 2013

First day (April 26th):

This morning (May 11):

I've watered it three times, and Mother Nature has provided a couple of rains, some overcast days and some sunny ones. The point of THIS blog is to make some comparisons between growing grass and improving lifestyles. In fact, any long term project takes time. Progress can SEEM invisible. Nothing is more frustrating than that feeling that one isn't making progress. But given a little time, it becomes visible.

So the entire "take a before picture" and "take progress pictures" is quite a valid concept. When I looked at my picture on race day? I had stopped taking those progress photos, and my concept of my body had deteriorated since last November. The scale was saying something a bit higher than I'd like... but the pictures really do say it better: I'm still the little old lady in training!

If you AREN'T taking progress photos and you're working on losing weight... start where you are. Continue your program for a month, and take another. You'll most likely surprise and please yourself!

LIFE is good... and YOU are worth it. Spark on! emoticon
