Time for Change! Photo inspiration.
Sunday, February 23, 2020
I recently returned from a long trip and started with SparkPeople once again. While going through the travel photographs, I found one that truly startled me. It's a nice photo of me, I look happy, but I also really look much bigger than I have before. I realized that I simply had not let get in how much my size had changed. Of course, as time went on, I had saw the higher weight on the scale, upped my clothing size and started wearing the 'loose' look again, but I apparently had NOT changed my inner 'picture' to match my realty. And I could see how this could be working against me. As is my way, I decided to do a collage to remind me of the true picture.
But an interesting thing happened while working on this collage. My first working title was 'TRUTH- this is 186", but as I worked, I also let in how happy I looked in this photo. I thought about that when I got home, I began SparkPeople again and how for these last weeks, I just changed what I had been doing and have been doing something else.
So the strident 'you are THIS size' energy turned into you know it's time for a change and you are ready. For me, the image is still a good reminder of where I am, but holding another reminder of change. It reminds me that not only am I ready, but I am taking actions in that change, just doing it. As Tiffany Haddish proclaims, 'She ready!'
