Being FitBloggin’ week, there is a ton of old photos floating around the interwebs. Especially thanks to Dubyawife who said,
I was like… no. Please don’t. lol
I’m kidding, totally fun of course! She posted this of me and her from Fitbloggin’12…
Then Alan joined in.
Emily posted this from FitBloggin’11.
Susan who is not coming for the first time since the beginning! (sad face)
Gail and I from last year.
Then Heather tagged me in this one from the very first FitBloggin’ in 2010!
To which one of my new friends from my gym commented:
Despite being completely distracted and busy with packing and preparations, my inner mean girl used this as a way to sneak in.
What does that mean? Is he saying I’m bigger now? Do people look at me and see a big, bulky girl?
Back then I was really thin. Actually, in that photo I was pregnant but ended up miscarrying. I was maintaining my loss for about 4 years, I’d been running regularly for 2 and just really started really getting more into weight training.
I can’t get over how much time has passed and how much I’ve accomplished since the beginning of this journey. Who would have thought making a commitment to blog weekly after my Weight Watchers meeting would lead to… to… well, whatever this is?
I’m truly committed to accepting my body as a result of my lifestyle. Pursuing a specific look has always been counterproductive to me. Yet there’s still a tinge of wanting to be super thin. Something I am not and something my current lifestyle wouldn’t support anyway.
Of course I had to ask The Husband about the image, who said that SAME EXACT THING: “That was you before CrossFit.”
I was like…
WHAT DOES THAT MEAN?
To which he said, “Ummm, you look like you work out now.”
I was like, “Well, that’s good because I do.”
