I remember in high school thinking how fat I was. I look back at photos of those years and wonder why? What was I looking at or comparing myself to? I looked thin! Not skinny, but certainly not overweight. I know I’m not alone in this.
Many times the opposite is true. How often do we think we look pretty good until we see a photograph of ourselves taken from the back or the side or sitting down and we think, “Holy cow. Literally ... holy cow!” Those are what we call ‘final straw’ moments. Moments when we realize we’ve only been looking in the mirror from the neck up and the expanse of our girth takes us by complete surprise. These are the moments that bring people flocking through the doors of weight loss programs across America.
