Back to health

It has been a year and a half since my baby was born.
Babies can be hard on bodies, and my final fourth child was my hardest.
 It's eighteen months after he's born and I am still working to get myself back to health.  I'm halfway to my goal weight, though, and that gives me lots of reasons to celebrate. Still, I've got a lot of work to do.

One of the motivators that has been working for me, surprisingly well, is to put up "inspirational" photos where I can see them often.  I have these photos by my desk, in the kitchen and on my bathroom mirror.  Between those three areas I see the pictures almost constantly.
 (I should really glue them onto my steering wheel of my car, because I feel like I'm driving around most of the time.)

When I look at these photos it reminds me of happy times, and helps me focus on my goals.
They are all taken around the same time-- 2007.

I don't often quote Queen Latifah, but she is credited with saying
"Confidence is like a light that emanates from you and makes your skin glow."

I have to agree.  When we feel good, we look good.  When we look good, we feel good.

Here's a look at some photos that bring me joy.
