Default Losing the Big Picture

Does anyone else feel like they are losing the big picture? You can get so wrapped up with your current goals that you forget where you came from.

Today I posted a progress picture on facebook, but then remembered that I still have the dress from my "before" picture.
I don't think the results are crazy dramatic, but it definitely helps put things back in perspective. I've done well. Bravo.



Does anyone else have any progress pictures they would like to post so that you can remind yourself how awesome you are?

(P.S. You're totally awesome even without progress pictures.)

I keep looking at the before picture and thinking I accidentally stretched it out, but I look at my face and the minnie ears and they aren't skewed at all.

I'm pretty sure my boobs are shrinking. Fine with me! (They look like they were gobbling on that dress in my honeymoon).
First picture- Honeymoon, October 2012. Progress Picture- 5 minutes ago.

Also, I'm beginning to think I will always have big calves. I'd prefer not to, but I imagine some athletes would die for my calves.

Did I tell you that I cut my hair? I donated it in honor of my mom's first chemo treatment.

Is honor the right word? I cut it to support my mom's fierceness?



My smile...I get it from my mom.

Yes, you did tell me about your haircut, your hair looks so good no matter long, short, curly or straight (mine only goes one way lol).

You are so generous in your life and with us. And your mom is beautiful too. She raised a wonderful daughter!

Um....Yes, I do. And wow! The transformation is crazy dramatic! I can see your relaxed, comfortable confidence coming from the "after". And It's awesome you donated your hair! You have helped someone so much!

That's probably from my pilates instructor saying "shoulders down, relax the shoulders, shoulders down, relax the shoulders" over and over during class every week.

LOL! Maybe but I rather think it's your pride at a job well done showing through!

That's amazing...and you're Mom sounds like a rock star! Best of luck with her treatments!

And you can totally tell in your before and after pictures, you look more at ease in the second photo.
