Motivate me.


I keep these two photos of myself on my refrigerator. And I didn’t realize until today that they are a source of inspiration and motivation for me. The picture on the left (I’m the one in green) was probably the heaviest I’ve ever been, though I can’t remember when it was taken. The picture on the right was probably the healthiest I was in more than a decade.
They’ve both been hanging there for quite some time, but I realized I look at the left picture and it makes me not want to eat whatever bad thing I was going to grab (or the second helping of the healthier foods I’ve been trying to keep in the house).

So, it’s clichΓ©, but I’m my own motivation when it comes to modifying my diet. I don’t want to look like that again, and until I can take that picture again with my friends and love the way I look, it will stay right where it is, to remind me of how far I’ve come, and how hard I’ve worked.
