Something that I want to do this week with my Flashback Friday is to go back a remember just how far I have come.
Throughout my weight loss journey I kept track of important dates. I tried to keep track of both scale and non scale victories, so that I would have a record to refer back to on those weeks when I did not lose much weight or had a gain. There were so many milestones along the way and I did not want to forget about anything.
On March 24, 2009, I had written down that I lost another 5 pounds, which took my total to 39 pounds lost! That's practically 40 pounds lost from October 2008 to March 2009!!
Just nine days before I had my picture taken for my birthday. This picture became so special to me, because it was the first time I had felt pretty in years. It's sad, but true. This picture was something that I wanted to show to others, because I it was obvious that I was making progress.

Do you keep a record of your victories and stumbles? If not, maybe you should start. It is a great way to stay encouraged while you are on your weight loss journey.
