More Pictures





I know you all may be sick of me posting pictures but I found this comparison funny. I am a teacher and at the beginning and end of each year I take a picture with my class and add it to a slide show for awards day. Now the first picture (in blue) is from May 2008. The second picture (in pink) is from today - May 2009. I gotta say, I like the second pic better.
I look at last year's pic and think a few things:
  1. Worst picture of me I have ever seen. Ever.
  2. Enormous oompa loompa on the loose - ready to eat your children.
  3. How did I breath when I sat down?
  4. No wonder I was always hot and sweaty.

I look at this year's pic and think:

  1. Wow. I have worked hard.
  2. I can now see better what others tell me they see.
  3. I think I am standing with more pride.
  4. I would like to lose about 50 more pounds. I wonder where they will come from?

Anywho, hope all is well with the rest of you. I have 2 very busy weeks left of school. I will update scale numbers this weekend.

You are standing more confidently. You feel good about yourself and that is reflected by your smile and your eyes.
