Motivation Monday #27

Two years ago my life changed. I didn't know it then, but it was the beginning of one of the best things I could ever do for myself and for my family. 

Two years ago, I sat in complete and utter disgust. I flipped through pictures of Caleb's second birthday one by one. I cried alone and I don't think any amount of time will dull that painful memory for me. 

I cried because I finally realized how bad my health was. I cried because I was so very depressed. I cried because I was overwhelmed with everything in life. I cried because that wasn't how I envisioned my life to be. 

These three pictures started it all. 
They were my true wake up call. 

I am so very grateful I got to share it all here with you from the beginning. 

Some of you have seen the changes from year to year! 

 I've shared every struggle and every triumph. 

I don't regret not one bit of effort I have put into this. It's been worth it all! 

I'm ready for another year of progress.

  1. You look great! One of the biggest changes I see is that in the old pictures, your smile looks very forced...but now it looks real! :)

    1. I had a fake smile a lot then. I was putting on a show for my family. Behind the scenes I was just a wreck.

  2. The weight loss is a big change, but I have to say you are naturally photogenic as well! Even with the weight loss I still really struggle to get good pictures!

    1. You are way too sweet! Thank you so much! I think you're beautiful and you take great pictures from what I've seen. Have you noticed that any time someone loses weight, they always get prettier? I've never seen a big transformation without the person looking more beautiful.

  3. You certainly look more beautiful! Your so photogenic, even at the larger size. I think you look so much younger since the weight loss. I love that your are keeping it off, that is my biggest worry.
