You would think that with my love of picture frames I would have a photo gallery in my home. I don’t. I actually don’t have a ton of pictures up. And the ones I do have, are much older. When you get to looking around, you’ll notice that someone is missing…my little man Jordan. We haven’t taken update family portraits since Jordan’s been here. I have pictures from last Christmas or the year before of the two kids, but I never purchased frames for them. I’m picky with my frames, so after a combination of my pickiness and procrastination…I’ve come to realize that it’s time to get some pictures up. So I’m on the hunt for some great frames and collage frames…but it’s also time to take some new pics.
That brings me to the point…my newest motivation. I’ve avoided the camera for long enough. Regardless of where I stand…on Dec 10th, we will be taking family portraits. It’s do or die. I do not want to take these pictures feeling unhappy about myself and my weight. So let’s do the damn thing. I’m picking myself up out of my rut whether I like it or not. Whether I’m ready or not. I’m already preparing my budget for the expense because we’ll be going all out. I want the special effects and the several poses. We’ll have a few outfit changes and we’ll all be coordinated. I already have cute outfits…I just need to fit into them. So the time is now. I’ve made out my schedule. I’ve decided that a good 15lbs will make a big difference. I don’t wanna make too big of a goal, I just wanna hit my goal. But 15lbs is enough to see a visible difference in my face and in my clothes. I just want to be comfortable in a true size 12 for now. If I can get there by Dec then that will take a lot off of my goals for the New Year. I don’t want to have the same Resolution this time, so it’s really time to get serious and just get it done. Blood, sweat and tears. That’s the way to success.
I’ve been motivated by pictures before…usually after seeing an unflattering picture of myself that pushed me into losing weight. Now I’m using that to motivate me, but just in the opposite way. My mind is made up. There’s no turning back. Help to make me accountable…I will be posting updates if not only just to keep myself on track 🙂
