This is me 2009 Edition


I'm going to be strong.

I'm going to do this.


Yes, this.

THIS this is:




A photo journal/diary of myself for one year. I will be trying to capture at least one picture a week of myself and posting it here, perhaps blogging a little bit about what I was doing/thinking/feeling at the time the picture was taken. Or maybe blogging about how the picture makes me feel after the fact.

So... without further ado:
This is me!

My hubby took this picture of me. He was lying down on the sofa and I was standing about 6 feet away from him. Anyway... this is NOT what I saw when I looked at myself in the mirror. These pants I could not fit into two weeks ago. Now, or at least for today, they are just right. I didn't even have to lay down on the bed to fasten them. High fives for me!

I felt like I looked pretty cute in this outfit, but I'm not happy with this picture. But if this is how the world sees me... so be it. All I can do is try to live better, healthier. This is the whole purpose of this blog, remember???

Well, there I am.

Sorry, couldn't post the first time around so just checked. Good girl Holly. Brave girl Holly. You are very sexy. It's the proportions... LOL

Actually, if you let them do your hair and make-up, you'd look like that woman in the kimono.

Anyways, you know we are all behind you in getting healthier!

Way to go, SKW! You can fit into pants that you couldn't two weeks ago and I...well, I'm the opposite. :( Keep up the good work!!!

P.S. Don't your sandals look cute! I like how they're a perfect match to your blouse.

Jeanie, I was SOOO coordinated, I even had a bag that matched the shirt and shoes. I was stylin'! :) Nice roomy bag, too. I want to use it as a copy to make more.

Wow, what a fun blog. I love the pics. I will try to follow you. I am having a tough time with eating healthy. I have stuck to my resolutions but still eating enough other junk to keep me from losing weight. Michigan's cold, dreary winters do that to me. You look gorgous. My hair gets shoulder length and stops growing. Keep up the great work.
