What A Difference A Year Makes

Tuesday, September 26, 2017

Of late I have been very hard on myself. I have been downright negative at times. It is so very difficult to see my progress now. I am within 17 pounds of being at a normal weight for the first time in my adult life and about 27 pounds to my goal weight.

I went from wearing a 4/5X or Size 30/32 to being able to wear a Size Small Unisex Tshirt or a Medium/Large Ladies & Size 10/12 jeans. Not bad for an old gal like me.

I have not always valued myself and that is a very hard thing to admit. My true friends always loved me and told me so often. My husband also has always loved me no matter what. So the sheer fact that I did not love me is very sad. I am now able to see that I was worthy back before I began this journey just as I am worthy now.

I did not change on the inside when it comes to how I feel about others but I did change in how I feel & treat myself.

Please please remember to love and value yourself so that you can accept the love of others.

Here is a side by side picture of me from about this time last year along with a picture from today. The first one I was just shy of 100 pounds down from my heaviest weight and the picture today is just over 100 pounds less then this time last year. What a difference a year makes.
