I was going through old photographs today mainly of cemetery photography which has long been a passion of mine though it’s been years since I’ve gone out and taken many photos. I used to have a website of my photos and loved to go out and take pictures. But when my depression and weight reached their worst I stopped taking photos. One of my goals for this year to start taking more photos and watermarking all my old photos and getting them back online in the form a blog this time, I plan on beginning to work on it tomorrow! While I was going through these photos I ran across a few photographs of myself from 2009. I was disgusted by what I saw, I looked so unhealthy and gross. My hair was always drenched in sweat. Seeing these photos made me realize how far I’ve really come, not just in numbers lost but in mental health and so much more. Sometimes seeing these photos makes you realize that you are a success story, because that person in the photo is not longer here and in a good way, that old me has been laid to rest and it’s my job to make sure she never returns. Some people like to delete pictures on their fat days but I choose to leave them where they are because they are a constant motivator to never become that person again and I mean never again!
Just a little announcement regarding the weight loss surgery support chats I run, beginning in May, the chat group will now meet just once a month on the 4th Tuesday of every month beginning now at a new time of 7:00pm (EST). This change was due to changes in my personal schedule now that I have full time employment. So mark in your calender that the next scheduled chat will be on Tuesday, May 28 at 7:00pm (EST). Room is still located at http://bariatric.oli.us. As always there is a calender of dates available by click on the weight loss surgery online support chat at the top of the blog.
