Why I’d NEVER quit!!

24 comments

I can’t thank you all enough for your amazing comments on my last post about my last “race”.  It means the world to me that I know that you all have my back, just like I’ve known in my heart this whole time.

Some of you mentioned things about me not giving up and not quitting…and honestly those things never, ever crossed my mind. 

I WILL NEVER QUIT ON MYSELF!!!!

I will never give up.  I will never throw away ALL of the *hard work* I have put into being this AWESOME individual I call, Suzi Storm Winking smile.  I will never go back to being the depressed, lazy, miserable slob I was before….because who I am today, and who I wish to be tomorrow, is far too amazing.  You can’t buy happiness, but you sure can work towards it. 

I’m writing this post because I came across some “before” pictures, from June 5th of 2008.  I forgot that these even existed.  When I opened them, I got extremely emotional.  It brought it back to that “place”…that deep, dark place where my misery was seeping through my pores.

So before I lose the guts to share them with you all….here they are…some never before seen before pictures….

(Please note, I have edited people out of these photos, such as my stepson, because I do not like the idea of plastering his 12 year old face online)

I will never go back to being in place…I just wont allow it.

Because I love being here, being happy, and loving myself above all else…

  1. You look freaking amazing! If I didn't know this was your blog, I wouldn't even have recognized you. I had to tap my hubby on the shoulder and show him the photos. You are AMAZING!!!

  2. Would like to point out that these were taken on my first and only trip to Yankee Stadium (last year before they tore it down) with Frankie, his son and my mom.

    Also, this was 4 months before I started going back to Weight Watcher meetings.

  3. You probably noticed this, but it was the first thing I saw ... a true sign of happiness. In your "before" photos you're smiling, but not with your teeth. In the after photo, you are smiling with your teeth. In your progress pics to the right, you don't show teeth until you're down 79 pounds. Thanks for posting - it's such an inspiration to see.
