Loving the Pictures of the New ME

 A photograph never grows old.  You and I change, people change all through the years, but a photograph always remains the same. ~  Albert Einstein


The New "ME"
I can't remember the last time I can actually say I liked looking at myself in a video or a picture (not even my wedding pictures). Each time we had to take family photos, I usually ran for cover, meaning I always ran to the back of the group and let everyone cover me just showing my face. If I wasn't looking for cover then I wasn't in the picture at all because I would volunteer to take them. 

Every time I used to see myself  in a picture, it was like getting a glimpse or getting a reminder of the unhappy person I was, even though, there was always a smile on my face. 

My Weight Loss Journey- I Lost 100+ Pounds

Whether or not you reach your goals in life depends entirely on how well you prepare for them and how badly you want them. We are eagles! Lets Stretch our wings. ~ Ronald Mcnair

Before                      After

Let me just come out and scream it : "As of July 11, 2012, I have lost 101 pounds and I'm wearing a size 4!!!!!".  Yaaaahhhhh! for me. It is still so surreal!!!! It took me a year almost to the date.   The first question that everyone asks me is: "How did you do it?"  Well, be surprised,  I had no surgery (not that there is anything wrong with that, if that's what you and your doctor decide is the best possible way for you), I had no magic potion, I don't have a secret or have a special pill.  I did it by just plain hard work known as diet and exercise.  I'm not here to promote any particular program because in my opinion, all programs work.  You have to choose one of the many that will fit your lifestyle, stick to it and make it work for YOUBe Determine, Be Patience, Be Consistent and Focus.
