Sometimes when you look in the mirror it’s hard to see just how far you have come when you’re looking to lose weight. The best way to really judge your progress is take photographs. If you’re starting out on a weight loss journey I’d advise you to take several photos before you start. It’s always good to have something to compare. The photo on the left was taken in 2009 when I was at my heaviest. The photo on the right just a couple of months ago. Here I can really see the difference. I’m almost at the weight I want to be. It’s time to start maintenance. I have made a vow to never again look like I did in the pic on the left. I wasted 20 years of my life looking like that.
The past year has certainly been eventful. Getting off diabetes medication. Losing over 30 lbs. Getting fit. Running. And this is just the beginning. I intend to start lifting weights more now. I’ve lost the weight. Now I want to tone myself up and get myself in better shape. The weight loss journey may be ending. But the healthy lifestyle is just beginning!
