EEEK!! The Before Photos…

Today is day 6! Can you believe it? I have made it 6 days AND I have stuck to my eating plan!

After I finally got through day 1, I decided to take “before” photos so that I will have photos to compare along this weight loss journey.

EEEK! Those photos are very difficult to look at. I truly cannot believe that is how far I have let myself slide backwards in terms of my weight loss. It truly makes me realize that this (eating healthy) needs to become the way I eat ALL the time. Not just something I do to lose weight and then go back to my old habits. I need to get the weight off and then continue to make healthy food choices going forward.

I know that I will be glad to have those first photos. They will help me see the progress that I have made, even on the days that I feel like I haven’t made any.

If you are starting a weight loss journey…take the photos! You will be glad to have them one day.

If you are still struggling to make it through “Day 1”, keep trying. Each day is a new day and a new chance to conquer Day 1. Eventually, you will make it through and move on to Day 2, Day 3, and so on. Just don’t give up. Giving up is the only way to fail at this.

Look back at how many Day 1s I have had. If I can do it, you definitely can do it.

I thought about posting those photos here, but I am just not ready for them to see the light of day yet. Someday.

As of today: -5.8lbs for me. My sweet farmer has maintained his weight for the most part but is looking to get rid of about 10lbs so will be following our healthy eating plan a bit more closely to reach his goal again.

How Was Day 1?

Which day 1? I couldn’t tell you since I didn’t stick to it for a day, yet again.

This evening I saw a photo, of myself, that my sweet farmer took while we were traveling in the vehicle. I cannot believe how the fact that I have a spare tire around my middle has escaped my notice.

I have been baking cookies and eating cookies. I have not been following the “diet” I had planned to implement and since I was getting lots of steps in while helping the kids move, I gave myself permission not to even consider what and how much I was eating (4 slices of pizza, two days in a row).

Tomorrow is December 15th. I have 10 days until Christmas Day. Let’s see what I can do…
