I’ve been looking at myself in the mirror a lot today. Like staring-can’t-look-away-people-are-looking-at-me-weirdly-because-of-it kind of way. Why? Because I am in awe of myself.
This is me in March 2009:
This is me today (via crappy iphone pic):
I’m in awe that I’ve done this on my own. That I’m working hard and the results are showing. I’m glad that I’ve done it while still eating candy and pizza and waaaay too much Ben and Jerry’s. I’m glad I’ve done this by making my own schedule and deciding when I wanted to workout, when I didn’t, and when I wanted to push. I’m thankful that I’ve been working at Green Mountain so I have had the chance to be here eating and working out – but I attribute my success to me. And I’m in awe of what I’ve done so far. This feels more or less like the halfway mark for me, since I still have weight to lose. I know I still have a ways to go but it now feels like it is much more achievable.
