Me. Photo reminders of living a healthy life . . .

Tuesday, February 19, 2013

Since I'm struggling to stick to my healthy goals (not today but in general), I decided to post "photo reminders" of when I felt great. Here we go!

College photo - age 20 (I'm on the left)

Me and the gang while living in Japan - Age 21

On top of Mount Fuji - age 22

With Amazon, my St. Bernard - age 27

Age 30

Me as a redhead - Age 31

Alpine Climb - Age 32 (I'm half way up)

On a roller coaster - Age 33 (my favorite photo of myself!)

Skydiving - Age 33

Toga party with my friends - Age 34

In New Orleans with friends - Age 34

Lake Weekend with my Girlies - Age 37

Thanksgiving while living in upstate New York - Age 40

Maine trip with friends - Age 41

Pennsylvania with hubby - Age 42

My Girlies - Age 43

The start of my Spark journey - Age 43

Hiking in Arizona - Age 44

Just me - Age 44

Loving life - Age 45

Starting my pet care business - Age 45

Me just a couple days ago (not a great photo of me but the only one I have right now!) - Age 46

You know...what I discovered through this photo journaling is that I've lived a full life at any age and any size. Yes...ANY SIZE!!

I've never let my size define me or stop me from doing what I want to do in life. I love that about myself . . . but now I want to do everything at a healthy weight. I can't wait !!

    this is great!! I love the look back. I may do that to remind myself that I too have had a full life in my own right. And I should not define myself by the size I am, which I do too often. Thanks for doing this Roe - this is wonderful. And what a great smile you have in every part of your life!!

    This is so awesome!!!!!!! I LOVE this photo journey... and I love that you have loved yourself at all of these times emoticon

    While going through my photos this past weekend, I had the same idea. I pulled out photos of me from when Jeff and I started dating to recent. The one aha moment I had is that I have always struggled with weight, but it wasn't until the mid 90s that I really started to put it on. My highest weight was 304 in Sep 2004... I found a pic from that time and said 'yikes!' I had no idea how big I looked at that time and how old I looked. I will figure out how to scan them in and upload them to a blog similar to this one. I actually want to create a scrapbook of my journey. I love that you had such great adventures!!!

    Holy cow, I just realized what time it is! I'm 10 mins late for a meeting... I'll check back in later :)
