More time has passed in this weight loss journey. I think this is my 6th year? I still have my rose.
Funny that I am not all that focused on the time passing. This last year was a little harder for me. More the last 6 months, really, particularly with work stress and the never ending house closing. However, there are some things that have stayed constant all this time. Exercise is really a daily part of my life. Not always all out exercise. Sometimes simple walking. Other times 30-40 mile bike rides. It’s just what I do now. I have gotten a little lax with food, which has always been and probably always will be my biggest sticking point.
Obligatory what I used to look like photos:
I was thinking about pictures and decided against doing the ‘get myself gussied up’ and pose picture and show pictures of me being me. The real me!
I am even willing to post a picture of me from behind – a shot I had no idea was being taken. In the past, I would never have put up a picture like this, but this is me and I don’t hide. I am not a supermodel, but I am pretty super 😀
Losing weight and keeping it off is hard. I have a lot of support through the ups and downs of trying to maintain or when I have to get back into losing mode. I have that support offline as well as very much here with the blog, which I thank you all so, so much for. When I named my blog, I didn’t want to give it a ‘weight loss’ kind of name because I realized that the journey doesn’t start and end with the scale. It’s the whole package of how you live your life. How you live your life and enjoy your life – despite where you are on the scale.
Here to keeping on.
