Change of Thoughts

I had a plan for a post today, but then I started catching up on weight loss blog reading. I came across this over at 266 and I found it so inspiring that I had to change plans and share this with you instead.

She, 266, wrote an amazing post called What A Difference A Year Makes and ends it with this comment:

"I went and had that dessert… I engaged in the patterns that got me to my biggest state within minutes of discovering how far gone I really was. It took me another four months to really get serious about this journey; before that I stumbled more times than I can count. I get how hard this is and I understand that we are all fighting lifetimes of habits and emotions and circumstances. But, I have to ask… Where could you be next year?"

I left a comment on her post that my original goal was to buy a dress for my husband's graduation in May 2011 that was NOT from the women's department. And each small victory and pound of weight lost I find myself imaging that the dress could possibly end up being smaller than I ever dreamed.

That, my friends, is where I could be next year. :)


  1. Leah, i had to stop by and say how great you look in your new picture! You are beautiful my friend.

    And yes a year makes a big difference if you keep believing!

  2. In a year...hmmmm...where could I be! This I will have to think about this evening.

  3. Oh yeah - we're talking WAY out of the womens department!!!! Some time you'll have to take your inches measurement and then see how far you've already come!!!!

  4. Yes! I have enjoyed watching 266's progress as well. And yours.

    And you are right, I think that dress will be smaller than you ever dreamed possible.

  5. By thinking of 'what a difference a year can make', it makes all the hard work now even more worth it! Love this post!
