I was looking at some photos of where I was a year ago from my instagram. I am so glad that I decided to document my entire weight loss through instagram because now I have this photo journal of how I have done this past year in my weight loss. The photo on the left was from 52 weeks ago according to my instagram. I remember that day feeling pretty amazing in my size 16 jeans and I think I had lost about 50 lbs. I was running quite a bit getting ready for my first half marathon and feeling pretty accomplished. I also remember that we went to a neighborhood dinner and someone complimented me telling me I looked so much smaller! It made my day and made me want to keep trying harder. Who knew even a year later, I would still be working towards my goals and actually committed to my weight loss goals. I definitely was just treating my new way of life as a lifestyle like I talked about in my previous post.
I love now that even when I mess up and even when I skip a workout, I don't just give up and throw in the towel. I actually tell myself to work harder and this little slip up is a going to happen and I have to live my life. I am just more aware and cautious of what I eat and how much I exercise. I am grateful my mind has transformed with my body because that is where the real change is.
