They say nothing motivates you more than pictures. Well, I feel as though I’ve hit an all time low and that it’s really time to commit to my health. And what better motivation than plastering my unattractive pictures on the internet?
Do you ever look in the mirror and feel shock at what you see? That’s how I feel when I look at these pictures. I don’t feel like the fat girl that I am. I’m not trying to be self-deprecating, but it’s the truth. I feel like my inner self and outer self don’t match up.
I also made a comparison of my face from about eight years ago to now. I can’t get over the difference. The crazy thing is that I remember not being happy with myself in the first picture, when I’d do anything now to get back there.
I’m tired of feeling sick and having low energy. I want to be vivacious and healthy and glowing. I want to feel like I can take on the world.
I’ve been working on my plan of action. As it is, I love to make plans, it’s the followthrough that I need some work on. I’m going to focus on:
- Drinking 8 cups of water a day.
- Tracking my food on myfitnesspal.
- Getting some exercise each and every day, even if it’s just a walk.
