A year ago, I was just starting the weight loss program at the local hospital. It was a behavioral program versus a surgical track, focusing on nutrition, exercise and psychology. I lost about 15 lbs during that time, and I was pretty proud of myself.
Now, I've been away from the program for some time now. I don't follow it perfectly, there's no such thing as "perfect." As a working mom (meaning: working out of the house every day, because EVERY mom works, and hard!) with two little boys, a hubby in grad school and a voracious schedule, I eat a lot of meals quickly and on-the-go. I don't always make the greatest choices, but I'm no longer a "finish everything on the plate" kind of girl. When margaritas and chips n salsa presented themselves last weekend, I partook. Because honestly, I get a margarita maybe twice a year.
But anyway....let's do a little before and after.
This was taken last year at the start of the program. I was not at all thrilled to be having my picture taken. In fact, I was more interested in taking pictures than being in them.
And the two photos that really hit home for me? I was modeling a shawl last night that I had made so that I could post pics on my Ravelry page.
From the back....WOW!!! I love it! Those pants are rather loose.
What a difference a year makes. "Happy Anniversary" to me, for taking steps to add "years to your life and life to your years."
