A long way to go.

So I was emailed picture proofs from the 5K today.
omg.
That's all I can say.

Seriously, these pics were super up close and personal...and cringe worthy to say the least. Sad thing is, I didn't even know they were taking pictures? I much more prefer my instagram filters ;) (follow me: alliemarshall627)

I would post them in all their "realness" but they are proofs and I'm not buying those ugly suckers. Bleh. So just use your imagination.

Anyway, the reason for this post is because I had a REAL eye opening experience today. Just when I was starting to get "comfortable" with myself I am knocked back down to remember that my weight loss journey is not complete.
I have a long way to go.
But will continue to work at it every day...

I had the same realization after doing one of my races. I felt great that I had finished and in under the time I set for myself and then wham - seriously unflattering pictures of my less than fit body. Be proud of your victories. Your body will catch up. Bradley is only a few months old and you're doing great. It will come, just don't give up :)

Just be thankful they were pictures of you running and not stuffing your face! You're doing the right things and results will happen. I've been at this weight loss business for 2 years and I'm sitting at 54lbs lost with still more to go before I hit my goal. Life is a balance and when things fall into place again it'll happen. you're still adjusting to life as a new mom, you're doing amazing!
