That Terrible Picture

We have all had it happen to us. We sit down to go through pictures only to find one that makes you feel like a complete and total train wreck. The one that makes you want to dash to the dentist to have your mouth wired shut and run to the plastic surgeon for nips, tucks, and sucks in all the right places. That moment was for me yesterday.

As I sat down at the computer to put my rodeo pictures online the family photo we had taken flashed on the screen and I cringed. As the tears welled up in my eyes and the dam nearly burst, a very close friend happened to call. I told her what I had just looked at and asked her to talk me down off the ledge I was planning to climb for a certain fate...........she told me to "Shut up and suck it up!" and so I did.

Last night I placed my trusty weight loss ticker on my blog to make myself accountable to my readers. I also drug the exercise bike into the living room so I have to trip over it if I am trying to avoid using it. I am ready and determined to drop some pounds. It is time and I WILL DO IT! Help me stay focused please.

So, what was your terrible moment that sent you into a weight loss fury? Share it!

Bless your heart. You should have called me. I love that you must trip over the bike if trying to avoid it, too funny. I too have said that I MUST lose weight. I love you regardless of what you think of yourself:)

I love you too Danielle. I'm fine, just had one of those "wake up and smell the coffee" moments!

Brooke you are beautiful no matter what, I have always thought that. But as for the wake up call, I had the same thing happen to me. I went and had a picture made of me and the girls for Keith's B-day and when I got it back I wanted to puke. It through me over the edge, but caused me to join Weight Watchers. And FYI my treadmill is in the middle of the Living Room because otherwise it becomes a clothes rack.
