It's funny, I've had a lot of people comment to me lately about how "tiny" I look. I'm not sure if it's a compliment or more of a statement?!? The thing that makes me sad is that my current size is actually the size I have been for a majority of my life...I just lost control of it for a while. I'm happy to say I won't be going back to the way I was when I lost my direction!
Let me show you why...
This is me at my heaviest:
In September 2009, my husband and I went on vacation and I can honestly say that when I saw our vacation pictures I was disappointed in myself. It was at that moment that I had my "A-HA" moment! I picked my husband up after a Seahawks game and drove straight to the local YMCA and signed up our whole family!
After a year of butt-kicking spin classes, becoming a smiling runner :), and learning how to actually eat a true portion size of food...
The rest is history.
So here we are March 2011, almost 45 lbs lighter, I am back down to my healthy, normal self. The self that I am familiar with, the self that people who have known me in the last few years will grow to recognize as my normal self and not my "tiny" self, and the people who may just be getting to know me will always know as just Sharon.
