That is the day maintenance begins for me...
That is the Day I will step on the same scale I stepped on three years ago and I will post the number.
And that is the number I will Hold.
I was looking through old photos last night.
I saw the me of nearly two and a half years ago...
And for the life of me, I don't know that person.
I look at old diary entries.
I remember feeling helpless to change.
I remember wishing and hoping to be healthy and thinner..
But if I am being perfectly honest...
But what I thought day to day.
I don't remember.
I do remember looking up, seeing what was facing me in the mirror...
and waking up...mentally.
And saying "no more".
It's like I decided to live...
And I have decided to put here tonight, in pictures...
the progression over the last few years.
And I will put one more picture up here On May 18th.
And every year after on May 18th.
It's my commitment to me.
What I saw.
Size 16 170's
I climbed mental hurdles and attended self defense classes:
Then the picture below...taken by my good friend Amber
When I hit 100 lbs lost:
One of the best days of my life:
I took a trip home to see my mom...who was proud of my accomplishment...
And I took a picture with my girls...It was the first time I wasn't trying to hide in a family photo:
I bought my first 'sexy' dress in a very long time:
Then there was the day I Fit in my daughter's size 8's
And Got to 146.5 lbs
Where I stalled:
Now I am ready to finish it:
On May 18th, 2012 I will weigh in and post my final picture.
My mind is set and nothing is going to sway it...
I haven't felt this certain since the very beginning.
I deserve this.
So do you, so get on it.
To the finish.
