There are lots of ways to see progress you’ve made. Whether it’s a checklist like I’ve blogged about before, a full journal, or a physical book, to name a few.
Today I got a pretty stark reminder of how far I’ve come, how much I’ve changed, and in some ways how I’m nothing like I was 9 years ago.
I had some pretty unhealthy habits in the past, from eating junk food, to inhaling soda and energy drinks, to not working out, and you know, drinking like a fish. I seem to forget how much I’ve changed in my physical appearance. When I finally quit drinking, I lost a lot of weight. In the last few years, I drink soda a lot less, only have an energy drink maybe once a week, and eat pretty healthy and clean.
Here’s the stark reminder of how far I’ve come….
Compared to almost now (this was from December)
But here’s the thing, without a comparison, it’s hard to know how much you’ve changed. It’s hard to see how unhealthy you’ve become. I am so grateful for a very patient husband (who was only my fiance in the picture above!) who has encouraged me to care about my health but still loved me when I was struggling.
Have you compared yourself to your past self recently? How do you see how much you’ve changed?
