I was actually looking through photos just to see if I could notice a difference between old and recent pics.. and I was shocked at the way I used to look a year ago. I've mentioned before in my posts that I graduated high school around 125-130 pounds and gained almost 100 pounds during college. I didn't want to admit how out of control my weight gain was.
I was looking for a difference in photos because lately, I've just hit a wall. I work out hours everyday, eat healthy, and feel like I'm not making progress. Well this is why I encourage you all to take photos along the way of your weight loss journey. Seeing the progression- seeing your hard work paying off- seeing you're losing weight when you may not feel it is so motivating and inspiring. I may feel like I haven't lost any weight but it's clear I have and I'm happy to see that progression. I was looking for more photos to compare but at my heaviest weight there are just not that many photos I wanted to be in so I only have a few to compare with.
My mom's expression when seeing this collage? 'WOW, I never realized you got so huge' THANKS MOM! ;) But it's true- looking back I just can't believe I let myself get that way but now know I won't let it happen again.
