2010 is almost done

I am very very happy that this year is coming to a close. 2010 was not a good year for my family. I did manage to lose a lot of weight, but the stress caught up with me around August and I stopped losing and just really maintained for the last half of the year. I'm hoping that with the new start that the new year brings I can re-motivate myself enough to lose the rest of the fat that is weighing me down and finally get back to looking like myself again. 

I notice when I look at photos of myself that I look a lot bigger than my mental projection of myself looks. Isn't that odd? I wonder if it's like that body dysmorphic thing that anorexics get except in reverse... I hate it though because it makes me not want to have my picture taken. And at the holidays lots of pictures are being taken all the time. 

Anyway, I hope you all had a lovely holiday season, and I wish us all success in 2011!
See you soon!


  1. I know how you feel with the pictures! I'm the exact same way! I look at them and think, holy cow, there's no way little ol' me could be that big! I think it has a lot to do with how we (or at least I) can think of ourselves (myself) as insignificant and small mentally. Pictures help reveal the truth though, and the truth is what keeps me going! Good luck in 2011!!

  2. I also have that experience with photos...I am always shocked at how big I still am. We paid a lot of money to have family pictures taken this year and all I could do was STARE at me...is that my fat sister? And what is the magic number when I finally "look" good to me??
    I am so glad you brought this up...I have been really feeling down about it all month!
