My weight loss update: a leetle reality check thanks to selfies and Youtube

Working on my Youtube channel recently, I found this little gem from 5 years ago. And while it made my toes curl to see how how heavy I was in 2011, it was also gratifying to note ----> that I am no longer that fat (let's just call it what it is). In fact, I've shaved off 10 of the 15 pounds I regained.


So that was a wakeup call but not just about weight loss. I noticed how awkward and lacking in confidence I was. Is it because I was fatter? Have I always been so inarticulate or was I just camera shy and paranoid? I'd hazard a guess that few people are super comfortable videotaping themselves. I tend to be overly self-critical.  And that's what I want to encourage you to do if you're trying to lose weight. As embarrassing as you may find pictures, look at them. As much as you might hate the camera, befriend the selfie. It will help you to see yourself as others see you. It's harder to hide from weight problems if they're staring you in the face. And it's easier see progress on weight loss in the camera lens!

Love you all! Remember, I'm pulling for ya!
