I’m not done with my journey by any means, BUT I am not HER anymore!
Left: My Honeymoon 2007 Right: 2 Weeks ago on my way to the gym
Left: 2008 at my absolute heaviest, 265 pounds Right: 3 weeks ago on Zoo Nite! 100+pounds gone
As you’ve seen in my last few posts I fell off of my own Healthy Wagon and I spent a lot of time feeling sorry for myself instead of kicking my butt into gear. I have always been the motivator, but I didn’t feel like I had anyone motivating me. But that was silly, I am my motivator! I began searching through pictures just to see if I in fact still liked the girl I used to know. Sometimes when I look in the mirror I still see that girl, but then I look at recent pictures alongside past pictures and I can see the difference. It’s time to stop feeling sorry and discouraged and move on. It’s time to kick it in and take things to the next level. What worked for me when I began will not work for me now. As my body has changed, hit plateaus, gained weight, dropped great numbers some weeks and nothing others…..all changing and adapting. But I don’t think my mind was adapting. I needed to SEE the difference. I tried on 1 lowly pair of jeans that I kept and I was able to fit Zac inside them with me! I have to remind myself that if someone had offered me 1 million dollars this time Summer 2008 I couldn’t of done it. I have to remind myself that I worked hard and met my own super tough goal of 100 pounds in 1 year, and if takes me a little longer to knock off the rest IT’S OK.
I’m proud of what I have accomplished and I look forward to the next set of Before & After’s when my journey is finally done! So friends if you’re ready to begin your journey check out: http://girlgonehealthy.com/?p=2479 and join me!
