Old family photos
Friday, October 26, 2018
This is my grandmother when she was around my age. I would honored to be half the woman she was.
I have hit the age where I am thinking a lot about the past and future. I have a daughter who just applied to college. A son in his last year of elementary school. I have lost both my parents to cancer. So I have been going though old family photos. It is quite a trip to see your grandparents as young people. My husband even remarked we looked exactly alike and even stood the same way.
About half my family has weight issues. They other half are tall and lean and can eat anything they want and not gain weight. As I look through old photos, the genetics factor becomes so clear.
So I am hitting the reset button on my weight loss journey again. I will never be tall and willowy like some of my family. But I can be more healthy and active. And I can lose weight and I will become more comfortable in my own skin.
