I saw a picture of myself, and didn't like what I saw. Also my pant sizes kept going up. Now I am back to where I want to be and feel great! :)

A certain size triggered me in 2001 and now once again in 2006!!!! This time around I'm staying better focused on my progress and BELIEVE that single digit size is attainable!!!

Blozzom :-)

A really terrible bathing suit picture (during a time when I thought I looked pretty good and thought I was in decent shape.)

I couldn't stand how tight my jeans were! I felt like a stuffed sausage.

tried on a pair of jeans, size 36, the fit great! bought them, got home and looked at the tag... with my glasses on... size 38!!!!
when I recovered from that I ventured over to the scale.... 215!
that's what did if for me. now, 3 months later, I've lost 30lbs and I'm back to wearing size 34.

I realized how deppressed I had gotten and that I had no more confidence or self esteem. Someone that knew the old me looked at how I had become and told me that it just didn't sound like the me they knew. They were right. I'm trying to find that me again.

eating like a pig!

Ok, it wasn't so much m y weight, but it was the way I saw myself eating. We were videoing my son's birthday a couple years ago and I was on the tape eating cake. I ate it so quickly, it was embarassing. Then I went back for seconds. It really changed my perspective and made me realize I had developed a very bad habit. My husband and I laughed, but it was a little humiliating.
