Blog to Lose

No matter the plan... we all Blog to Lose!

Well, I have been at a low point all week. All of my own doing. Not because of stress, being tired or bored. Just very ugly old habits. I started the week reading my friend Mrs. Ballou's No Excuses blog and she was so right and so inspirational. Mid-week I went on Roni's Weigh to read her What do you love about your body? blog. I started the Countdown to Turkey Day group. I still struggled. Finally,this morning I checked in and found Roni's Exposed blog about the power of looking at our bodies and the positive things about our bodies. I went right upstairs took off my clothes and took the picture. It brought tears to my eyes when I looked at the picture. I anticipated hatred and dread. What I felt when I looked at the picture is, "That is not too bad." "Why do you feel so bad about yourself?" Believe me I could see problem spots but my initial reaction was I really shouldn't be so mean to myself. This was an incredibly hard thing for me to do. But I decided if I am going to face the music and head into the holidays making better choices I need to be better to myself.

So here I am exposing myself to you all.



It was a hard but deeply moving experience. I am moving forward.

You look great! Great post, too. It's amazing how sometimes we can be so mean to ourselves, saying things to ourselves we'd never say to anyone else. I'm not sure if I'm ready to take a picture of my mid-section, even for just me to see...I have to psych myself up for that one...I'll let you know when I do it.

Heather you look awesome! You are doing great! I know how it feels to be down on yourself and to have a bad feeling week. But we have all come along way!! You look amazing and don't forget it. I teared up when I saw your post and Roni's. It is so funny how we can see each other as so hot and awesome but we still have a problem with ourselves. I deal with that all the time. Just think of what you would have thought of someone with the body that you have when you first started this. Now you have the awesome body that everyone envies!!
