Please Don't Scream!

Well, I hope you don't scream but my before pic is here (or I guess you could say my now pic):



I took a few minutes earlier to really look at this picture and I can't believe that I let myself get like this. I am so completely disgusted by what I see. It's not how I see myself when I look in the mirror and it's not how I feel. I don't even recognize the person in this picture but I know it's me and that is so scary. I am definitely motivated by this picture I sure don't want to look like this anymore. I made a print of this also to put in my purse so that when I think I need a candy bar or I want to run to Mc Donald's for some fries I can look at it and remind myself why I am doing this.

I have really been slacking when it comes to the exercise and I have to stop doing that. I have to continue to move my body and to burn those calories or I will never make it to my goal. I have made a promise to myself to start that again tomorrow evening since it is much to late to do it today but I will no longer be putting it off. I need to remember that watching what I eat will only get me so far and that the work out will take me the rest of the way. And I definitely want to be more active this summer and be able to better keep up with my husband and our nephews.

On the plus side I have already lost 10.25 inches off of the body you see above but where I'm not sure. I don't really notice much change. My mother gave me a really good way to look at it though: "It's like a roll of paper towels, the first part of the roll each sheet you use doesn't seem to make a dent in the size then, after awhile, each sheet you use seems to make the roll get smaller." I think that is a really cool way of looking at it. At least I looked at my roll of paper towels a little differently last night! LOL!

Congratulations on your loss so far! You are very pretty. Losing 10 inches already is great. Keep up the good work.

I think you look great. You have a great frame. You will be so thrilled when you reach goal. I have just discovered low carb eating and it is working. If not already, maybe you could do a bit of reading on it. Its helped me.
