Quote for the Day:
Striving for excellence motivates you; striving for perfection is demoralizing.
~ Harriet B. Braiker
I don't do "selfies" because...well...because I don't like pictures of myself...taken by me or anybody else.
But I came to a realization this past weekend and I thought a picture would be appropriate.
I have had a CONSTANT battle with my weight since I can remember...seven or eight years old? That is no way for anyone to live their life. I have tried lots of things over the years. Some worked and some didn't.
At age 40, I weighed the most I've ever weighed. And my weight has fluctuated a LOT over the past 13 years since then. However, it has slowly, slowly, slowly come down.
This past weekend I was adding it up, and I now weigh 38 pounds LESS than I did at the age of 40! That only equals about 3 pounds a year...but 3 pounds OFF a year is better than 3 pounds ON a year!
When my daughter gave me this shirt in September, it was too tight.
For comparison purposes, here's one of me at my son's wedding in 2005 (and this wasn't even my highest weight)...
The moral to the story??? Don't just look at the day-to-day details, but consider the big picture when seeing where you've come! It helps give motivation for the future!
