Transformation Tuesday

So, I know I am not at all near my goal and I have not 'transformed' my body yet, but I thought I would put it into perspective a little. Even just for myself. Just to see...

The first photo was taken in August 2009. I weighed close to 260 pounds. Unfortunately my weight crept up even more after that trip. I felt ashamed and disgusted when we got home and I saw this picture of myself. I had to convince myself I really was looking at me. It's so crazy the image you have of yourself in your mind and then the one that the world really sees. I was so blind. By choice!




This second photo is me... today at 215 pounds. It may not seem like a bug change physically, but today there is something there that was nowhere to be found in the me of 2009. Today I took this picture with pride, confidence and a gentle appreciation and acceptance of my body and the woman I am.
I didn't suck anything in. I didn't judge or criticize. It's just me. Happy me.




So, no... I am not at my goal but I AM on the right path. Which is more than I could say for the me of 2009!

Not giving up.
