A Pause…

Yesterday evening, I ran across this:

I am one of 15 people featured in an article about running and weight loss.  I don’t remember submitting myself for this story, but I probably did.

Anyway, I was just scrolling through and when I saw myself it kind of jolted me.

So I posted the link to the story of my Facebook page and received a lot of positive comments from friends and family.

It was a weird place for me to be.  Because on one hand, I thought that I should indeed be pretty proud of myself.  But right now, where I’m at, I feel like a failure.

So I was forced to kind of process where I’m at.  Does the fact that I am about 15 pounds heavier now then I was in that photo negate the progress I made?

I guess maybe it doesn’t.  I think that maybe my story can still hold value for others even though I am struggling?

I hope so!
