(wo)Man in the Mirror....part 2 (Or ... 1 year progress!)

(wo)Man In the Mirror

"Man In The Mirror" - Michael Jackson
I'm gonna make a change, for once in my life. It's gonna feel real good, gonna make a difference, gonna make it right... I'm starting with the man in the mirror. I'm asking him to changes his ways. And no message could have been any clearer.... 

This song was my first blog song. I have thought about this blog, probably since the first time I blogged. My 1 year review. How far would I come? How would I look? Who would I be? (Silly, wouldn't I be...me?) And then when that 1 year hit, I found myself at a loss for words. I knew I needed to post pics, but that was daunting (and still is, even as I type this). The pics are easy. I have them handy, and I don't mind showing them. (Yet, here I am, still nervous about posting them....), but the answers to the questions, the thoughts, that's harder. 


So for now. The pictures. 


Before. 1 year ago. June 2010. 


During. Mid-May 2011. 




Both pics were taken in a mirror, ironically. But that's 75lbs gone. Seventy.Five. (Yeah, it still shocks me!) 


I'm doing it. I'm making the change to the (wo)man in the mirror. Most days I don't see it, some days I reallllly see it, and the rest of the days, I'm thankful for those that DO see it and remind me of it. I'm forever grateful to Billy & Lisa at Face The Pain. Words of thanks can't ever express my gratitude, I just hope the "doing" helps!
