My Inside Out Pics
If you know me at all you know that I will do just about anything to avoid taking a picture. I have mastered most of the tricks in the book.... put children in front of me, chin up, hide behind others, wear all black...be the one to take the picture...you name it...I've tried it. Well, I've decided this isn't a way to live. I want to have pictures of me and my kids and Bruce together and since the main reason that I haven't taken lots of pics of us together is because of my physical appearance....(weight issues) I've decided to face my fears right here (my apologies in advance) and document this weight loss journey in photos periodically.
The top picture is of me on Christmas Eve of 2010 and the bottom picture is of me on February 12, 2011. I've lost 17 pounds between the photos....but I can't really tell that much of a difference on the outside....but oh wow...the changes happening on my inside. That's what really matters the most anyway. So, maybe by next month there will be more visible notice...but for now, I find it hard to even convey in words what God is teaching me through the process of surrender.
