Posting before and after pictures...with pride!
Thursday, November 04, 2010
I have decided to take a really big step and post before and after pictures. I cringe when I see pictures of me at my heaviest. I never felt as big as I was, but I certainly didn't feel good about the way that I looked. Today, I am 82 pounds lighter and just 10 pounds away from my goal weight. It has taken me four years (I fell pregnant and gained back 35 pounds) and it has not always been an easy road. But, I am so pleased I've stayed on it. The person I was then to who I am now is unrecognisable. My eating habits have dramatically changed. I ENJOY exercise. I have immeasurable amounts of energy. It has taken me a really long time to work up the courage to share this picture. But I feel that it is important to begin to change the way I feel about these old pictures. Instead of hating what I see, I think instead that I should feel proud of how far I've come.
I've earned it!
This one was taken on Halloween with my littlest girl. Happy that I can now be a positive role model for my children.
