Weight Loss Motivation

Every so often I find myself looking through old photos, and seeing the physical changes I’ve gone through over the past few years always amazes me. Now that I’m pursuing a consistent exercise regime, sometimes it’s frustrating when I feel like I’m not making any progress. But when I take a look at those old photos, it puts everything into perspective.

Late 2005. It was the last year I had a relaxer.

2006? I’m in the front with the red belt.

Fast forward to now… After losing 20-25 lbs in 2009, I slowly began to regain weight. Wanting to nip it in the bud before it got worse, I joined a gym Labor Day weekend. 2 months later, I’ve only lost 3 pounds (!), even though I go 4-5 times a week. Needless to say, I’m frustrated. But when I see photos of myself now, I stop complaining. =)
