Of the Way We Were …
Not all memories of the “good ole days” are fun to dwell on. I realize I used this picture just the other day, but in looking for this picture I found a few of my “Walk Of Shame” photos that really put into perspective what I have to be thankful for this year, during our season of Thanksgiving. Then there were the remaining security blanket fat clothes that were in my closet–I tried on clothes yesterday too. I can feel a fashion show coming on. I think it is time to move forward. I am sure this will be hard for some to believe when they look at the pictures above, but I NEVER saw myself this big. I still have problems when I turn sideways and look in the mirror–I whine whens this gonna change to Mikey all the time. My body really has changed. I need to rejoice in that fact and not whine about where I have not yet made it too. I needed this picture grouping to help me see how far I have come over this past year.
I know it is odd, but I had a skinny mentality. I saw myself about the size I have been for the past three or more months of my stall; not as I actually was–morbidly obese. This whole reflection of me in the past is good for the soul on many levels. I am facing my weigh in tomorrow and I need to keep in perspective where I have come from. And where I am now; no matter what the scales say tomorrow. I have come a long way and this is emotionally empowering–I need to live in that everyday.
So for the Thanksgiving month I am going to take a walk down memory lane and refresh my memory of my victory over obesity this year. When I hate the way a photo looks when taken from below … I will remember these photos and rejoice:
I really do not like the photo I am about to post, but it is better than these others … I must get over myself. 🙂
Live rejoicing everyday …. Hey Beth … I can see a collar bone! ehehehehe! That is worthy of rejoicing everyday.
Well, I must away to the market for to fetch some tomatoes for tonights meal, you all be good till I get back you hear? …..S
