A long time ago, in galaxy far, far away....

Yup, that young woman is me. I am 25 or 26 and that's me and my husband, although we were not married yet. We celebrate 31 years of marriage on the 18th and this was taken a few years before we got married.

I was probably at my lowest weight as an adult and this picture was taken after I had lost approximately 70 pounds.

My mother was right, I had pretty nice legs back then. Bad hair cut though!

There has been a lot of living since then, some good, some not so good. Sadly, the good and the bad were both reasons to eat, either in celebration, or in misery. Still fighting the urge to use food in that way.

I know I'll never be that young again, but it would be nice to find those legs again.

    Congratulations on a long happy marriage. That says a lot in a world that divorce is so prevalent.

    I am such a bad wife. Our anniversary is on the 21st, not the 18th. I've always had to ask HIM what date we got married on!

    I'm heading to the dog house now.

    Ohhh YES!! I had a similar hair style. Lol the 80'!!

    I love the question "Am I eating to live or living to eat?". Especially when I KNOW I'm not hungry. You're making wondogful progress!!! You've done so much better with exercise this past challenge!!!

    As me hints I've learned while on Sparks: asking myself,,,am I really hungry? Will an apple taste wondogful or a certain food is only what I want? If its a certain food likely its a craving. If I immediately get busy,,,,it goes away.

    Love it! What a great photo! I don't think the hair was that bad...

    Congratulations on 31 years! Isn't it is amazing how fast life seems to fly by.

    You will get those legs back! Keep plugging away. They are under there somewhere!
