Last night I found a new incentive for losing weight. My Aunt posted this picture of me on facebook. This picture was only taken two and a half years ago. It makes me sick to think about how much weight I have gained in the past two + years. I almost don't recognize myself in the picture. My sister actually said that she didn't recognize me in the picture. I guess I have had a child since this picture was taken but I am not calling all of this baby weight. I am calling it I can't control my eating weight.
I've decided that instead of dwelling on the fact that this is what I used to look like I am going to use this picture as incentive for what I could look like if I keep losing the weight. I think I have about forty-five to fifty pounds until I am back to that weight. I weighed around 155-160 pounds at that point. The sad part is that I thought I was so fat back then. I wish I could just be happy with my weight. I'm not sure if that will ever happen but I do know I was happier with it at that time.
Just thought I would share my new incentive with everybody. Maybe you have an old picture of yourself that you could use for some new incentive to lose those extra pounds.
