That's me on the right (I have very few photos of me from that time, I wonder why)My struggle with my weight and body are not over. If I'd have to measure my success I'd say I am at the halfway point of where I am suppose to be. My stomach is my main "problem area" and I have insecurities, like many other individuals. In previous post I explain I will try to obsess less about weight and I will, but it is easier said than done. Now that I am back to my "normal weight" I will stop weighing myself every day. Losing weight is still a priority but I need to focus on changing my relationship with food, NO more binge days, that is not healthy for anyone. NO more using junk food as a treat. I have to reevaluate my goals and remember why I started this in the first place, I wanted to be healthy and fit, sometimes a number on the scale can not measure those things.
Moving on the a lighter note, there is a blog I follow called The Road to Less Cake, it is also the journey about a young lady, Nikki, who like myself trying to get fit and eat less cake (hmmmm....sounds exactly like my struggles). She is such an great blogger, she has been doing great on her road to less cake, today post was on Marilyn Monroe. She passed away 50 years ago today. Nikki has a great post with picture of Miss Marilyn (click here to read), inspired by her I decided to post my all time favorite picture of miss Marilyn
I came across this picture a couple years back at a poster sale, I love it. I think it has to do with the fact that she is lifting weights although, as a weight lifter myself I have to say her grip seems weird almost a bit off but who cares, it's Marilyn Monroe!!
Anyways, keep checking back on my progress I promise I will buckle down with my eating habits and I will keep posting on my successes and my not so successes.
