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.
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.
