Mohegan Sun Casino, December 2010
Josie sent this to me last week, she had found it in her cell phone and wanted to help me see how far I have come in the past five months.
Holy Shit! I am so proud of my progress and Josie's progress in our Weight Loss Journey.
I know that I am very lucky to have such a supportive wife and family in this process. My Mom and Dad always make sure that Josie and I have special dinners on Sunday (usually fish or chicken) and that there is a healthy vegetable side. Josie doesn't yell too much when I come home with a new food scale that I had to have because I am anal and must accurately weight and measure all my food.
And I am thankful for all my other friends, family, and co-workers who support me and read my blog and care about my progress.
I will always love me, I am a great person and I would love to be my friend if I wasn't already myself, but I know that I was not as happy as I could be in that picture. I was not as confident and happy as I am now. In that picture I was Ashley1.0. I am currently Ashley1.5 and I can't wait to be Ashley2.0 in March when I should be at my goal weight. I am always evolving and changing as a person and will continue to do so, but now my future is so much brighter and I look forward to knowing all of the future me's.
I am Ashley, version 1.5, I like me, and I am an awesome person.
