Ugh! I had this blog written once and accidently deleted it. Really???

Basically it was just me rambling about how I've made it SIX WHOLE DAYS without binge eating.
SIX WHOLE DAYS of staying in my calorie range.

Last night I was looking at my pics on here and instantly was depressed. Would you keep them or delete them? Honest answers PLEASE!!!

Todays calories ended at 1190. I've been having issues with my left knee for well over a month and I don't want to make it worse. My goal right now is exercise 3 times a week and I have done that. So today I'm taking it easy. Sometimes it's just as easy to eat less than to work out for me.

Here is a Sunday Funny for you. love, Love, LOVE cats. esp funny ones. lol

    Michelle I have yo yoed a dozen times or more. I see the pictures going back and forth from my teens to my 40's. It makes me sad, ashamed yet I keep those pictures for inspiration if I did it then I can do it now. Its a part of my history and what has made me -me. I have love myself for who I am fat or thin. I will never give up trying to be healthy. I sit here in my big girl panties ready to fight never ending battle of obesity. You can do this one day at a time.

    Hilarious cat picture!!! I'm going to steal it for my Facebook.

    I think you answered your own question. I would save them on your computer, but I wouldn't keep them on Sparkpeople. That will give you room to show NEW progress pictures, and so you aren't constantly focused on what you did or didn't do before and what you are doing NOW. :)

    Or if you don't want to delete them all save the ones that GIVE you motivation, and everything else needs to go. You don't want that negative energy when you get on here.

    Lots of love.

    And let me add, I'd keep them somewhere on your computer, so you can add them back later if you'd like, but maybe take them off your page so they aren't visible right now if it bothers you emoticon

    I think that when you said that looking at them made you instantly depressed, you answered your own question. I'd get rid of them. The past is in the past. Focus on the present and the future. You are doing awesome!! If you have an immediate emotional reaction to something, follow that gut feeling. Anything that doesn't make you instantly happy or make you feel amazing should go! Everyone is different in how they relate to pics from the past. It doesn't matter what others say you should do, it matters how you FEEL. :) Do what you gotta do and move forward! :)

    I've been wondering the same thing too. I've gained back all of my weight and it's really hard to see all of the pics from when I was losing and looking more fit and actually enjoying working out. As others have said I'd leave the pics for motivation. Not because of what you were but because of what you're going to become. You're awesome, btw. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Way to go on 6 whole days without binge eating! I'd keep the pictures up for motivation perhaps, but you know yourself and what might be a trigger. You want to make yourself feel happy and not depressed.

    You'll be very happy to show the Before and During pics once you get to the After pics.

    I say leave the pictures because before you know it you will be back to the same size you were with your total loss and everything will still be in place it is accomplishments that you have made that you worked hard for! But you need to do what makes you inspired to feel & do good emoticon emoticon

    No don't delete your pics. That's you girl. It's you on your journey and you are on the same journey now. Those are your accomplishments, your trophies and they deserve to stay. Be inspired!

    keep the pictures. The one in my profile is when I lost 75 lbs, I put it all back on and didn't want to look at those pictures, then the 2nd of January I decided to put it up so I could see how happy I looked and it's my motivation that I want to be there again, and it is working. I haven't had one binge day and have lost 17.5 lbs.

    Congrats on the 6 day binge free streak, that's great! The pictures... I honestly don't know. I'd say keep them for motivation, remember what you're capable of... but I don't want you to be upset by them and have them be a trigger for binging either... I would say to keep your largest before and smallest after, maybe one of your side by sides, and chuck the rest. Make room for your NEW pics! Your NEW milestones!

    emoticon Congrats on the 6 days! Hope your knee feels better soon!

    If the pictures are making you feel bad I say take them off of your page, but save a copy of them somewhere in case you want to look back at them some day. Some people can use pictures like that as motivation, but some people find that they have the opposite effect. Do what you feel is right for you.

    emoticon Good for you to get six days in your calorie range out of 7. emoticon You definitely know how to do it, with how successful you were in the past too! I have mixed emotions about your pictures, just like you! I think to save them for motivation and then I think delete them and start all over, because that's motivation too. So, you can just go by the majority vote and let that be it and that will be it! Take care and thanks for the inspiration you are to me. I need it so much!! emoticon emoticon emoticon
