Getting real

Tuesday, January 27th 2009

Have you seen my profile photo? I think I'm cute, I think that photo doesn't remind me of what I'm doing here at CK. Last week I decided to take some full figure photos to give a good idea of what my reality is at this time, reality being 209 lbs when the photos were taken. I think I often feel thin, certainly thinner than I actually am right now. These photos do not scare me, but certainly enlighten me. I think what scares me about my fat right now is when I look directly at my body. Even...

Monday, Monday

Monday, January 26th 2009

I had a very good week last week, other than not enough exercise. Calories were kept in bounds and I posted a 2 lb weight loss, yippee! I expect to make it back to the AquaSize class tomorow and get back on the road to moving my bod again.

Monday, January 12th 2009

I just wrote to my friend and as I was offering advice, my little voice said to me, "Are you listening to yourself?" Good advice, Little Voice. Taking care of ourselves seems to be the hardest thing we do. We love one another so much as to encourage and praise and pray for. Make your friend your mirror, whaddaya think?

I'm inside my calorie limit today! If I can do that at least 3 more times this week, then I can move to Level 3 on Bronze, whoopee! During my drive home today...
