Wake up call

Thursday, August 09, 2018

We went on vacation in Tennessee. I just recently went through the photos on my camera... and found this gem. My fiance took it. I had absolutely NO IDEA how bad I had really gotten. I usually take selfies with my phone and we all know the filters make your face look slimmer....

Weighed in at 266.9 this morning. I am getting way too close to 300. I just want to cry... I know people have body dysphormic issues... but it typically hits people who have lost a lot of weight. Me? When I look at myself, I dont feel like I look that big... and then photos (like the one above) surfaces and I am jolted back into reality.

I keep saying its time to get serious... but this time, ITS TIME TO GET SERIOUS. I am turning 30 in November. I refuse to be this big when I hit 30.

Happy Sparking people!

    Reality can hit us like a brick

    Reality has to hit before you take action. Mine was when I was in a 2X and moving to a 3X. Lost slowly and I feel good. I have let my body settle and tell me where it needs to be at this point. Over the last 6 months I think I am ready to go to a smaller size jean. I will never by a model size but love the comfort of my size now.

    I, too, was motivated by a photo. Had no idea I was that big, because I never felt that big. Was in denial b/c I didn't look that way in the mirror, so why was the camera being so CRUEL? Cheering you on as you reach your first goal! You can do this!

    It was picture that woke me up that it was time to get healthy. Pictures are worth a thousand words!
