Who are those people in the pictures?

Paul and I have both been struggling with food choices and realizing how far we’ve come.  While logically we can describe and list how different our lives are, we often look in the mirror and can’t see it.  When we look at our bodies we are overly critical which leads to setbacks.  I notice rolls on my stomach, my large thighs and arms, my junk in the truck etc.  Because our weight loss has been 2 plus year journey, it’s hard to see day to day changes.  I had a HUGE shock today when I found my pre-tri pictures from 2009.  To show how much we’ve both changed I’ve include Pauly pics as well.







I plan to print these pictures out and hang them up in a few places.   It helps remind me what I’m working towards and how far I’ve come.  It helped make me realizes that it’s been worth the 2 plus year investment and if it takes me just as long to loose another 50, it’s well worth it.
