Oh how I so want to be at the end of this get in shape race…but I am just beginning. And no doubt there will be so many lessons for me to learn and obstacles to overcome. I was challenged to take “before” photos of what I look like. I had done it before when I started crossfit and the results were amazing. Sometimes seeing is believing. And I have to say seeing these photos sure is motivation to get these shoes working.
I read this recently and felt so encouraged.
“When you are in the midst of the before it just seems like one big mess where the goal is to get through as quickly as possible and then forget so that you can focus on all that is pretty and fixed up. I forget that the Before has its own purpose, and it’s not to shame me. It’s to inspire and encourage me. Because all good change takes time. Good, important changes don’t happen overnight. And while we are in the midst of the hard work of changing, we can so easily forget how far we’ve come. And this is where the Before picture is your closest friend.The gross imperfection is part of the story. And if I leave that part out, I can’t fully appreciate how far I’ve come.”
