The day after Christmas

26 Dec

So much has changed in 1 year.  Lots of hard work, dedication and determination has brought us to today – the day after Christmas.  The day I decided to change my life a year ago.  The day I looked at this picture and cried because I couldn’t stand the way I looked.  The day I looked at this picture and was mortified that I was wearing a maturity shirt and I was NOT pregnant.  The day I knew that was going to be the last day I looked like this.

Dec 2011

A year ago Christmas is when I really saw what I looked like and I really dint like what I saw.  I needed to make a change and I needed to change my life for the better.  I was overweight and unhappy and I knew I was the only one who could change that.  My daughter was 2 years old and I could not longer use the baby weight excuse.

This year was so much better.  I felt great.  I knew I did what I set out to do and I couldn’t be happier.  This year I was happy to take pictures.  This year I was happy to look at this picture and see how far I have come.  The only tears shed are pure tear of joy and happiness.  This year is going to be so much better.  I love the new me and I will not go back to the way I was last year.
