Happy

I think a big part of this journey is being happy with where I am now. I can look back and remember when I was thinner. Remembering how good thin felt is a positive thing. Remembering how bad fat feels is also good. But I can not dwell on the should haves, could haves and would haves. I'm where I am right now and that is all that matters. Comparing myself with the me from 2008 or 2010 or even 2012 is self destructive. Likewise comparing myself to the gal that stands next to me at Zumba or the woman I see walking down the street is self destructive. I am where I am and I have to be happy with it right now. The past is just that...the past. The future though....that's wide open!!!

Thinking thin and very happy with myself!!!

Ohhh and three weeks into the new year and I have lost 8.7 pounds thus far!!! 3.3 pounds this last week!!!

Yep, all we can work on, is ourselves. Let others success motivate us, but not tear us down. Good job! And congrats on the 2013 weight loss!!!

Way to go on the nice weigh in!
What others do can be inspiring but don't let it bring us down.
