"Big Picture" Moment...

One thing I've noticed in this journey to wellness I'm on is that sometimes I get so caught up in the day to day things I'm doing to improve my life that I forget that every once in a while it's good to take a look at the big picture, too.  My visit to the doctor today did that for me.  Actually...SHE did that for me!  She pointed out something I may have missed had she not made mention of it.

As of today, I've lost a almost a QUARTER of my body weight.  Yup..25%.  Whoa.  Does that shock you as much as it did me?

I must admit, I'm a bit stunned.  I hadn't really thought about how much of myself would be gone percentage-wise when I reach my final goal.  I know that in about 15 more pounds, I'll be halfway there...but I have always been focused on the number of pounds I need to lose and have already lost.  I never thought about the percent of me that is now missing!  A quarter of my body...gone!  WOW!!  Even better, when I'm done, my body will be 57.3% smaller than when I weighed 328 pounds.  I'm almost halfway there!!!

Now THAT'S some motivation to keep going! In your own journey, look for the motivation you need to get going...and keep going!
