A Great Reminder of My Past


So, I am going through some of my pictures and came across these in particular.  They are a good reminder of my past and focuses me on my present efforts that will pay off big time in my future!

That’s me in 2002.  Not quite at my largest, but pretty darn close.  Just before I made a major decision to take control of my life.

 

Below is me almost 1 year later after making the decision and following through to achieve the result of my effort.

 

Seven years later, I have set new goals for living a healthier life.  I am taking an overall approach.  Reconditioning my mind, my body, and my spirit.  I use various resources to keep me motivated, too.  I still have my size 24 jeans hanging visibly so I am reminded of how far I’ve come, and where I do not want to return.  It’s amazing today that I never saw myself quite like that before.  What’s even as amazing is how people treated me after I lost the weight. I will save the details for another blog entry.  I truly have some stories to tell about those experiences.  For now, I just wanted to share some more about myself.  Another layer of the onion.
