I know I felt so uncomfortable at that weight. I think I look like I am miserable. Then I found these two pictures from an outdoor event we did in August. I had my surgery September 9th so this is probably only a few weeks before. I HATE these pictures. I had no idea I was so heavy and when I saw these it sealed the Lap Band deal. I knew I could not live like this.
Summer is our bread and butter at the library. We do a summer reading game for kids through adults and we give out huge prizes. We do lots of fun events and work long hours, but I love it. Part of the excitement over summer reading for us is our official summer reading t-shirts. Every year we get 3 or 4 t-shirts with the logos on them. These become our work "uniform" for the summer.
I always hated wearing these t-shirts because I felt fat and dumpy. This year I want to feel good in my shirt. I even ordered a couple sizes smaller this year. This for me, is a great reason to stay on track. I want to really enjoy summer this year. Only a little over 4 more months to go. I should be able to lose at least another 25-30 lbs by then. I would feel amazing at that weight!
What is your motivation to stay on track?
