Envisioning the future

This is Jane.  I saved her picture because she is the same height as me, and she lost about the same amount of weight I'm trying to lose.  Seeing this picture helps me visualize how I might look when I reach my goal sometime in the distant future.

I spend a lot of time online looking at before and after weight loss pictures.  I've been overweight for so long and looking at these success stories helps me focus on what's coming instead of getting bogged down in how I used to be.  It's so encouraging to see people who have actually lost over a hundred pounds!  It encourages me because if they did it, I can do it too. 

I also love seeing how different people look after they've lost a lot of weight.  It's like they unwrapped the package of who God made them to be!  Sometimes, I've noticed, overweight people look similar.  But when they lose weight they look more, well, distinct.  I love that. 

Just musing tonight.  Hugs.

  1. What an interesting observation! There is no one more "distinct" than you! You are a unique individual with unique gifts that God gave only to you. I love you!
