It’s hard to see progress in yourself when it happens so slowly, spread out over many days. It’s hard to see how you change your life by choosing one action a day. It’s hard to see how eating something healthy and spending a few minutes exercising is doing anything. But it does. The small things always add up.
Those pictures might not be the best at showing the difference in 40ish pounds, but they aren’t meant to. They show how extra weight makes you hide from the camera (hello puppy blocking technique) instead of being open and excited about taking pictures. They show how all the pictures I had from that period are of me sitting instead of standing or being active. They show how I acted and how I felt then versus how I am now. To me the pictures show a completely different person.
This isn’t my first time losing weight. But it is my last. So the speed, the failures, the mistakes? None of it matters. This time the weight isn’t all coming back. The end goal is what matters and I will reach it. And if you want to, so will you.
Tomorrow I’m headed to Fitbloggin! It’s going to be awesome, but a very long weekend. I’ve got lots of people to stalk meet and see, so I can’t wait for it! If you are going to be there and want to hang out, let me know or just find me!
