So I went out with John yesterday and took a few photos. The hill you see above doesn't look too steep but it is one that I had trouble with initally and yesterday I went up it in the hardest gear and at 10 km/h, I was going down the hill at 20 km/h so that is pretty good!
I had him take some of me as well so that I can see my progress. I hesitate to take photos of me right now since I don't want to feel discouraged about my less favorable areas, but I am making more of an effort to focus on the things that I like about myself and also thinking that when I do get slimmer I will want to see where I was before. Also I don't want to wait around for a magic day when I am "perfect" to start enjoying my life and all of that.
After work today I am going to swim with my boy and I am going to chase some more hills after he goes to bed. Can't wait!
