Join Me On My Weight Loss Journey

It's time to be honest with myself.

Two days ago, I was at the museum and I happened to catch a glimpse of my reflection in the mirror. I had to do a double-take. What I saw disgusted me. I couldn't believe that it was me, that I had let myself get to this point. Of course I had looked in the mirror before, but this time was different. It was clear that even over the past year, I had gained a lot of weight.

This picture was around Easter 2014. I am the woman in the plaid jacket.
In total over the past 8 years, I've gained 65 pounds. In 2006, I weighed 160 pounds and today, I weigh 225 pounds. I am 5 feet, 8 inches tall. This is difficult for me to admit.

It is time to make a change.

Let me break it down for you.

I can look flawless and sexy in one out of 100 pictures that I take with the right lighting, filter, and angle...

...but in most of the pictures I take, I don't look flawless at all. You only see what I allow you to see.

I can make myself look smaller than I am by standing certain ways...

...but it doesn't reflect what I truly look like.

I'm finished with this. I. Am. Finished. It's a done deal. I can't go on living this way. It would be more difficult for me to accept what I have become than it would be to actually do something about it and work on changing it.

I want my outer appearance to reflect who I am on the inside.

And I want you to join me on my journey.

I feel that by sharing this, it will help motivate me because if I give up this time, I'll not only be letting myself down, but also those who are rooting for me. I want to look in the mirror and be proud, not disgusted.

So, please join me. Follow me on my journey to a healthier lifestyle.
