We recently had family pictures taken and just got them back.
I love them.
Except for one thing.
When I saw myself in the photo’s I was quick to click to the next picture. At first I didn’t want to look, I shifted my eyes to my husband and daughter and kept my eyes off of myself.
But then I stopped.
For the past couple of weeks I have really been battling with myself over my self image (my whole life, who are we kidding) and have really been trying to get my head where it needs to be in order to focus on healthy living and making lifestyle changes.
Looking at myself in the photo’s is what I needed.
I’m disappointed in what I saw. I have gained more weight then I thought. When did it all get away from me?
I’m lucky to have an incredible support system who encourages me and whom I can rely on. I have turned to them for the support I need.
I’m going to change my relationship with food and get back control.
I want to live a healthy life for my family.
For my daughter.
This is the beginning.
*Special thank you to Tracey A. Clarke Photography for the beautiful photo’s. Amazing work!
