I am lacking in will power. I do well for a short time and then don't. I don't blame anyone but myself. Zig Ziglar said "People often say motivation doesn't last. Neither does bathing-that's why we recommend it daily." I think there is a lot of truth to that. Anyhow, I decided I would join and make my own viritual weight loss corkboard. I haven't created it yet, but I was looking through the pictures in the mean time and I found this.

If that isn't motivational, I don't know what is. I am about 75-80 pounds over my ideal weight. That means I am carrying around 4 times amount of the fat on the bottom shelf. 4 times! I used to feel good (when I first reached it) wearing a size 14 (down from a 22-24 originally, so there is some pride there) but I have allowed my weight to creep back up 5 to 10 to 15 to 20 pounds up from my lowest weight. I willingly put the bottom shelf of fat back on my body! Good grief! This stops now. Going to go get dressed and take the dogs for a walk and then come back and go to church. I think I am going to make this picture the wall paper on my phone so I ALWAYS have it with me.

    What a great picture to show how it really is. I have recently reached 20 pounds lost and that picture really puts that in perspective. Now I have many more bottom shelves to lose.

    Thanks for sharing:-)
