Sometimes, when I am feeling down, stressed, crabby, bored or even happy for that matter, all I want to do is eat. And not healthy food. Crap food. High calorie, high fat food. The kind of food that in the end, makes me feel worse…and remorseful.

So, sometimes, when all I want to do is stuff my face, I take a look at where I came from and realize, I don’t ever want to go back to that place, to the old me. To the unhealthy me.
By looking at these pictures, it reminds me of how far I’ve come and how much I appreciate my new lifestyle. It reminds me that I am doing great and that food is not the answer. It reminds me that I am 50-pounds lighter and a heckuva lot more healthy.
Sometimes, I just need to take a look at where I am and know that this is where I want to stay. Healthy. Plain and simple.
