Remembering where I came from...

Some days, like today, I get a little down on myself. It's so easy to look at all of your imperfections...the things that are STILL not up to par....

For example....the infarmous Bat Wing, yes I'm working on this with weight training 2-3 days a week...and it is getting better. But it's hard not to get a little impatient about

Another example, even though I've been blessed to lose 128 lbs in 15 months *which is awesome!* I STILL have this nagging line in my head of, "you've STILL got 12 more pounds to lose! Why aren't they aren't off yet! Other people have reached their goal by now!"

What helps me during times like these are A.) looking at before and after photos  B.) comparing my quality of life before RNY and now C.) focusing on the GOOD things that have happened and the good things that WILL happen:

Well, a quote from a wonderfully inspiring lady, Joyce Meyer, hits home for me today,
 "I'm not where I need to be but THANK GOD I'm not where I use to be!"
**Take home message: Focus on the good, NOT the bad!!
