It seems I take a lot of photos of food, it plays an important part at family gatherings.
I really wouldn't mind knowing what being thin feels like again, who would? I just seem to have trouble finding the motivation to make the diet and exercise changes necessary to achieve the results.
There was a time when I knew exactly what feeling thin felt like. (OK, so it's been a while) point is ... I was not always over weight and although I don't expect to look like I did in these photos again, I'm posting them as a reminder to myself of what being thin looked like.
I'm sure that if I were to really put my mind to it and was willing to put in a whole lot of hard work, I could certainly find out what feeling thinner than I am now feels like, don't ya think?
On the 4th of July I walked back through the doors of LA Fitness and started putting the unused gym membership I'm paying for, back to work for me.
At this point, I'm doing well to make it through the first 2 miles on the elliptical equipment, but already it's getting easier and quicker. Just getting the old blood pumping and more oxygen to the brain feels good and I'm grateful for every 2 miles I ordinarily would not have traveled.
Next week I'll be adding a weight/resistance routine and will begin working my way up to 5 miles instead of 2. I'm searching for the inspiration to make a real commitment, butfor now ... just showing up will have to do.
No workout partner at the moment, but am looking for one. With my wacky new schedule, that may not be as easy as it's been in the past. I'll keep you posted.
Not sure that looking at these thin photos will help motivate me but ... it's got to be more inspirational than looking at a bunch of heavy photos.
These last 2 photos are before and after shots, my way! After all ... this is my journal and I don't have to post anything more unflattering than this right now if I don't want to, and I don't.
BTW ... I am so not as sad as that very last photo makes it seem ; )
