Default Something that bears repeating

The person you are to become is always watching the person you are right now. The image you have of yourself tomorrow, depends on the actions you watch yourself take today. The confidence with which you live next month, will be based on the integrity of your actions this past week.

You can hide and conceal things from just about anyone, but the person you are to become is always watching. And that person's opinion of you will play a major role in your life.

Will you be proud tomorrow of what you did today? Will your future self find strength in your present actions and attitudes? Will you learn from your mistakes and from your successes? The you of tomorrow is watching, waiting, hoping and depending upon the you of today.

Live each moment like someone is watching. Because someone is watching, someone who can make you or break you. Live so that the person you become in the future can look back with gratitude and admiration at the person you are right now.

My Lowest Journey Weight: 242.8 - July 30, 2012
My Reboot Journey Weight: 286.6 - June 27, 2015

5% (272.3) | 10% (258) | Under 250 (249.9) | 15% (243.7) | Severe Obesity BMI (241) | 20% (229.4) | 25% (215) | 30% (200.8) | ONEderland (199) | 100 lost (186.6)

You'll never be able to deal with what's going on with your body until you deal with what's going on with your soul.

That's very profound.

My addition - the person you are becoming will love you, respect you, admire you, and be utterly grateful to you for believing in yourself enough to go on your weight loss journey.

I look back at my 370 lb self and I am so GRATEFUL to her for doing what she had to do to get to where I am now. She was so courageous! What she did was so hard!

I had an inkling, when I started, that one day I would wish I could go back in time and give my 370 lb self the biggest hug I could. And that's so true. She was so brave. I love her.

Great thoughts! Thanks for sharing them. We all need that reminder once in a while.


Life style change started on Jan 13, 2011. I was going to lose 100 pounds by Christmas.
I lost 93 pounds by Oct 1, 2011 and am holding there for now. We'll see what happens.
New goal: To maintain at about 160 Final Goal: To decide if I need to lose more
Just Keep On Keepin' On
