The next request I got was from Cat's Chic Chat; she asked about my band and what my biggest success was non-scale related.
I do not have a lap band. I work hard and with a lot of blood, sweat, and tears...I lose a little at a time. It's been a roller coaster and it's been tough; but the other day I found some old "before" pics and I can tell you that I'm so grateful for where I'm at now. I've worked really hard, and I fall down a lot; you can tell if you read my blog on a regular basis. But it's been worth it! Here are some pics so you can have an idea of what I'm talking about:
The above picture was taken when I started my blog.
I took this picture yesterday while trying on clothes at the store. :) As you can see, I'm coming along! Slowly but surely, I am coming along.
As far as my biggest non scale success...hmmm. There are several things that come to mind- I would probably have to say that graduating from college is the first thing that comes to mind. It took me 8 years to complete my bachelor's, and it was one of the best things I have ever done for myself (besides move to CA). It was so hard and there were so many times that I wanted to quit- but since I have finished it I have jumped leaps and bounds professionally and financially and even mentally and I am so so so thankful that my mother pushed me to keep going, even when it was tough. Yep! If you're in school- KEEP GOING!! It really does pay off in the long run. :)
And there you have it folks! More tomorrow!!!
