Mini-Goals - One year anniversary on 3FC and 80 pounds gone

01-30-2012, 12:16 PM
Ive been up and down on the scale the last month with the holidays. I had actually reached my 80 pounds lost this journey, 100 pounds since my highest weight in December, but then gained over the holidays and got back down there again.

And, to top that off, yesterday was my one year anniversary on 3fc. Hoping to see my second year anniversary well into maintenance mode! 15 more pound to go.

I wanted to put photos on here, but my iPad isn't being friendly. So, you can see all photos and descriptions on my blog today which is linked in my signature.

Thank you all so much. 3fc has been a big part of helping me keep the determination. And while sometimes it feels like this journey has been so very, very long, in the big picture, it really hasn't been.

I really like the progession shots... that really sets it home that even though it seems like a small amount from one point to the next it makes a big difference.. although we may not see it when we look in the mirror everyday

Thank you all so very, very much.... The feedback I've gotten here and elsewhere is overwhelming.... While I'm so happy to be where I am, it feels weird to be getting the outpouring of feedback because I should have been here (or further along) all along. I spent, wasted 20 plus years of my life not caring about myself.

And another post I just read hit it on the head for me. I never learned to love myself and I think I only now started to take care of myself because I got a wake up health call. And my thoughts were not to take care of myself for me... But to take care of myself so that I could raise my children. Through the year though i have come realize that to take care of them, I need to take care of myself first. I am am happier mom, a more energetic mom and so on because I inave taken time for myself and taken care of myself.... So... In a twisted way I'm learning to love myself.... So I can take care of others better... It's the only way I can "ok myself" to love myself is to say it is in the end to take care of others... But at least I got that it's important, that I'm important.
