Oh Lord Almighty!
This picture was taken last night by one of my singers! That is me just about 10 pounds lighter than when I started this journey just 5 short weeks ago!! Can I get a "gag me!"
How is it, I can look in a mirror and think I look better than I do! I mean, I was feeling pretty good about myself last night. Well, if this doesn't instill in me why I am on this journey in the first place!
Here I am a person that is blessed enough to walk red carpets, go to events like private parties at the White House, Emmy Awards and the soon to be Rock n Roll Hall of Fame Inductions Ceremony. I walk around with glamorous "fit" and famous people. Then there is insignificant out of shape me! Can I get a "hell NO!"
I can not wait till I am reading this again in a few months and can be reminded of what I looked like. As much as this is brutally painful for me to see, its a steel toed boot in my ass! I am not going to stop this journey, it is simply one of the cornerstones along the path.
Ironically, a gentleman singer came up to me last night and asked "I don't mean to interrupt you, but did you lose a whole lot of weight?" That felt so good, I was in a great mood last night because of it. When I think about it, about 3 years ago I was 204 pounds. I had lost 22 pounds with the help of my daugther, Michelle.
Somewhere I lost touch and gained nearly all of it back. Lets face it, if I didn't decide to make this change in January, I would probably be at 204 right now. I was just 6 pounds shy of that.
Okay, I am glad I have this picture. It keeps me in check. It reminds me how important my life change matters and how vitally important it is that I am going to Fitness Ridge in April.
My goal in the end, is to wear a sleeveless gown to the Emmy awards in September. I promise you, if I can get to that figure by then, I will be definitely going to the Emmy's. (Right Alan?)
Hope everyone has a wonderful day!
Thanks for listening!!
