I have to admit that I have focused so much on the before and after of my juicing and weight loss journey that I haven’t focused enough on the DURING.
I recently met up with a friend who I haven’t seen in years. She wants me to do some media appearances with her, and asked me to get some “before and after” photos ready.
Um… “after”? I’m not at my after… am I?
No, I’m not, and I can freely admit that. However, I am not as far away as I think I am, and I’m farther away from my BEFORE than I thought I was. I recently saw a video of me that was recorded in 2009 and was shocked at my appearance. SHOCKED I tell you! It was a stunning revelation that led me to a sense of great joy. I don’t look anything like that anymore, and I need to recognize that even though I am not yet at the weight that I want to be, I have made great strides in my journey.
Don’t be like me. Celebrate your DURING and recognize the work you have put into your change.
