Looking back into the past...

I was looking at pictures from a few years ago. I have just been in a weird mood and getting frustrated with my progress lately. Looking at these pictures really put it into perspective of how far I have come. I look back at this person that I was and it is like looking at a stranger  now.

This is me a few years ago...

                                                                                                                   This is me a month ago...

Looking at these pictures side by side is  very emotional.
I still do not see myself as the person on the right, but I hope one day I will. I still imagine myself at my heaviest and still have those insecurities at time. However, I do understand that those memories will help me keep things in line. I NEVER want to look like that again.

Side note:

I have been getting a lot of inspiration lately from the book "I Got This" by Jennifer Hudson. When I finish a chapter I sit back and really think about the message. She is one confident lady and is a person that understands how hard it is to make better lifestyle choices. She inspired her family and friends and countless of other people. I get so much out of her book and would recommend the book to anyone who is going through their own weight loss journey. You do not need to be doing Weight Watchers to get the message. I personally am not on Weight Watchers and have really enjoyed reading about her experience.

Here is to a new week and new successes!
