How I See Me

This title made sense to me when I was writing this post, it is all about how I feel about me when I looked at a photo taken during 2010.

Taken at the Race for Life at RAF Waddington on 23 May 2010
Wednesday evening I was at the local Crop in Lincoln and I had put into my bag a number of photos to be scrapped for my 'Book of Me'.  This was one of a group of photos taken at the Race for Life event in 2010. 

My first thought when I saw this photo was 'Boy, do I look fat!'  My second thought was 'I did achieve my aim of completing the 5km course in under 1 hour'.

Last January I made the decision that I did not like the way I looked, and when I had to buy a dress in a size 20 I was mortified!!!!! 

Since January 2011 I have lost about 2 stone in weight (unfortunately I did put a bit of weight on over Christmas/New Year). I still want to loose a bit more weight and want to achieve that during 2012.

One big difference I have noticed about myself since I started loosing weight is my confidence.  Instead of hiding away and trying not to be noticed, I now find myself standing tall and proud.  I like the way my body is currently shaped - but want to be a bit slimmer.

This photo is a reminder about how I looked and will help me continue to loose more weight until I reach my goal.  I will continue to go to my Weight Watchers Meetings each week and track my progress.
