quote, #5

i can’t believe i was unhappy with my weight & thought i had too many things going on…little did i know that i would soon be pregnant & life as we know it would never be the same. on some exhausting days when i can’t muster up any energy, i’ll flip through my mexico pictures & marvel at how young (and thin, for my standards, THIN!) i look.

Today I keep recalling this quote from Rebecca:

“You know, I wish there could be an invention that bottled up the memory like perfume and it never faded, never got stained. Then whenever I wanted to, I could uncork the bottle and live the memory all over again.”

  1. yea i do that look at what i thought were my fat pics and marvel at how thin i was- its just that such a different set of thoughts exist in the head now its unreal. 🙂

    that said, youd be surprised how you suddenly start feeling like your old self again- just give it time ad be patient babe.

  2. jammie – it’s def. been creeping back but in a new way i can’t explain. the “old me” is resurfacing more easily as i fit into my new role more naturally and gracefully. what a journey the last 11 weeks have been!

  3. that’s a great pic, you look beautiful.

    and i knowww…i can’t believe i was unhappy with my body last year, even though i had absolutely no reason to be. i look at the pics now and wonder was i was so hard on myself (or still am!).
