I took a new picture because I was specifically asked if I could post an updated back progress photo… the bottom shot was taken this morning, I look a bit shiny because I was getting ready to go out for my run and I was covered in sun cream.
I post progress photos to help inspire others, because all I can show you is what’s on the outside, but the real progress is on the inside. I no longer have migraines. I no longer have heart palpitations or tingling arms. My allergies are gone. My bursitis and other joint problems are gone. I no longer have to take two naps just to have enough energy to get through the day. Best of all, I no longer have to struggle with food and exercise, because I did and continue to do the necessary psychological work that is at the heart of all this.
If you’re confused about what I mean by “psychological work,” and/or you’ve struggled up and down with obesity and you’re tired of fighting yourself and you want to be done with it for good this time, I’ve written about how I did it here, here, and here, and there’s additional information in my sidebar.
FITBLRS! You know I love you. Without this community…. gah, I don’t even want to think about it. You guys are the best. Much love.
The photoshopped version of this has been floating around Tumblr for ages. Here it is alongside the original. We have incredibly unrealistic standards of beauty and they have got to change.

“Between you and every goal that you wish to achieve, there is a series of obstacles, and the bigger the goal, the bigger the obstacles. Your decision to be, have and do something out of the ordinary entails facing difficulties and challenges that are out of the ordinary as well. Sometimes your greatest asset is simply your ability to stay with it longer than anyone else.”
