The other day a friend of mine told me I was looking "amazing."
Sometimes it's hard to accept compliments when I know how much farther I have to go on this journey.
But I need to accept them, and take them with gratitude that someone else is noticing.
So, I looked up some old pictures to show myself just how far I've come (so far).
It's amazing what a difference 9 months makes!
This was our fall picture last year:

But it doesn't hide my face and all the extra fluff around it.
Here's a picture I took just before starting my running program:

Another day...approximately 2 weeks into the running program.
(Not much weight was lost, but at least I have a "smile" on my face. And got better at creative layering.)
This was taken (by A.) last Sunday:
44 pounds lost, 29 1/2 inches lost, two sizes down, a 5k under my belt, and at level 2 of The Shred:
If this isn't motivation to keep me on track, I don't know what is!
More pictures....after the next 30. :)
