Never Before Seen "Before" Pics! ;)
Thursday, July 10, 2014
I let my weight hold me back from having my picture taken... not only that, but the few that were taken never really saw the light of day, because I looked fat and didn't need anyone to see that. I realize how silly that is now, if they knew me, they knew I was fat, they knew what I looked like, so there was no reason to hide it. But if you check my Facebook, all the pictures posted of me in that phase are at the perfect angle and perfectly cropped LOL! More importantly, there aren't very many of them. I regret that now, and it is also why I don't have very many "before photos". They just didn't exist... Most of the ones on my page in the green shirt are even from the same day.
I have been working on changing my perspective and having a positive attitude. I know that things can't always be
's, and there are many things that I can't control in life... but I can control myself and my reactions to outside stuff... and I am choosing to be positive! So instead of looking how far I have to go, I decided to look at how far I've come. Then I thought, "It's such a shame I don't have other before pictures to look at"... Then I realized that some of my friends might have some on THEIR facebook pages. Yes that's right, I looked fat, so they were not on my page, nor was I tagged in those photos... as far as I was concerned they didn't exist. But when I found them, I was sure happy that my friends didn't listen to me when I asked them to delete them.
Between the darker hair and the excess weight, I don't even recognize "the old me", and that is a really exciting feeling!
