Birdeye View of My Weight Loss....

This picture pretty much describes my attempts at weight loss lately.

Don't ask, Don't tell....would describe it too.

I found out that what you don't know can hurt you and it pretty much looks like I'm on a destructive course.

When I stepped on the scale this morning I was sure some one else must have had their foot on it too or else I was wearing lead underwear.

I started out this venture at 283.....The scale read 280!

At first I was shocked, then angry, then disappointed, then reality hit me. Just because I haven't been counting calories doesn't mean that my body hasn't.

I thought up countless lame excuses, pointed the blame in every direction, and finally came to the conclusion I had no one to blame but myself.

I know the "beat yourself up game" ....I know the "Why even try" syndrome better, but I'm not finding comfort in either of those extremes anymore.

So I am making a not so quiet "U Turn " this morning and doing what I know I should do and what works.

I need your "atta boy girl" more now than ever before even though I know I deserve them the least right now.

I don't like my body image so it's time I changed it.

Please pray, "the spirit is willing but the flesh is weak"

YAY! NEVER give up! NEVER give up!!! God and me are with you babe! You be the Little Engine That Could ... and we'll stand back and watch your caboose shrink!

I love you, momma! You can do this. Emma and I are on our way there, and we'll take lots of walks with you.

ROFLing at Melli's "caboose" comment!!
I know you'd never believe it, but I was nearly 200 pounds at one time...I had to work really hard to get a lot of my weight off. So I DO understand how hard it is, and how discouraging and how disappointing this can be. But you can do it...I know you can...I love you just the way you are, but I know how it feels to look in the mirror and be disappointed in your body. This is something you have to do for you!!
Love you!!

You can do this! I know you can!
