Faces of Time
It was not easy to look through photos and see how I’ve changed in just a few years. The photos below are from 2011 through 2016.
The truth is, I have been gaining weight since 2003 when I went in to early menopause at age 44. I lost approximately 15 pounds in 2012-2013, but since gained it back.
- Photos tell a story
- Photos are a wake-up call
- Photos force me to Face MY FAT
These last two photos were taken December 25, 2015. I thought I looked pretty good in the selfie photo that I snapped in the car on the way to Christmas dinner with family.
But then I made the mistake of sitting on Santa’s lap (hubby, Mark) for a photo of the two of us.
This photo says it all, shows it all. My weight was out of control. No wonder I prefer photos from chest or neck up only!
Another month passed by and my double chin began to resemble two swirls of soft ice cream. At night, I could hardly breathe when laying down to sleep. I tried to blame my pillow.
It was time. Time to face the fact that I’m addicted to sugar and refined (junk) carbs. Time to accept that I am overweight.
