I saw my family this weekend for a bbq... My stepmother pulls me aside, and says that she has something she wanted to show me. It was an old picture of me with my siblings-taken approx 5 years ago when I was at my heaviest weight. It was unreal. I actually almost forget sometimes how heavy I was. It was a great wake-up call that I've come pretty far. It's taken a while, but I look like a completely different person.
Having said that...the picture also had another interesting effect. It makes me want to push even harder (if that's possible). It didn't give me a reason to rest on my laurels, if you will. I thought it would, but nope, I am even more determined to see this journey to the end. I WILL hit 105lbs, and do a full-body recomp. And the best part...I don't care how long it takes. There is no time-limit. It took a long time to get here, and it gets harder the closer I get. I accept that.
My goal for 2012 is to join an MMA gym. I want to train like a boxer. A fighter. I want to attain a level of hardness and leanness that I've only ever dreamed about.
Anyhoo, I'm attaching some pics. I would NEVER normally share this, but I think I have to...just this once
My before and some current pics (about a 40lb difference).
Thanks for listening...
