But I still see myself everyday and like most women I still see all of my flaws in the mirror. It doesn't matter that the scale says I lost 56 lbs since my surgery. It doesn't matter that since my first weigh in pre-surgery in September I have lost 83 lbs. I still see the thick thighs, the flabby arms and the large stomach.
That is until last night.
In a effort to document my success and comprehend the changes that were happening to my body, I ask a friend to take pictures of me. So far we have hit around the same time, first with a base line picture before the surgery and 2 more after. Here are the results.
|Seriously how awesome is this!|
There are no words, for how I felt last night when I put this collage together. The scale and measuring tape are telling the truth and changes are happening. And it's wonderful!
I get it now. I can over look the arms, thighs and belly because they won't be there after awhile. The time, money, and pain were worth it because I am changing. And I can't wait to see what next month brings.
