It was one year ago today THE PHOTO (above) was taken. This was the photo that kind of pushed me over the edge. I posted about it when I started my blog and you can read about those feelings by clicking here.
One year later I am so grateful that I am no longer the woman in that picture - happy with everything in life except her weight and health. Then I was at a loss as to where to begin to take care of my health, because I knew I had failed at diets so many times in the past and I refused to start a diet again.
Today that has changed and I'm so very grateful for this. I may not be near my weight loss goal yet, but I am more active, I have more energy to get through busy days than I ever remember having before and I have hope.
Hope that I can change.
Hope that I am capable of things I didn't think I was.
Hope that I will continue to reach my goals.
And hope in knowing I will never give up.
Are you frustrated with where you're at, or are you in need of encouragement? Take a minute to think about where you were a year ago. What has changed for the better? What can you learn from as you move forward?
I hope this spring offers you some nice days to ponder and be thankful for the newness of life you are experiencing in your weight loss journey just like I did today.
