Reason #77 – To show awesome progress in my self-portrait project
Recorded on December 5, 2013
Just before I wrote the list of 100 Reasons to Lose 100 Pounds, I had finished taking a photography class and wanted to take on a self-portrait project, just to keep up the habit of taking pictures. When I wrote the list, I had the project in mind and thought it would be awesome to chronicle my progress in photographs as well, and I’m so grateful that in addition to documenting the process on film, I also took some awesome pictures!
And, as I had hoped it would, it worked out really well!
December 2012, when I decided to give roller derby another shot after returning from an injury received after my first practice. My body wasn’t built for skating, so I had to rebuild it to make my vision a reality.
“I am doing the best that I can. I am working my ass off, and I’m so proud of myself for what I’ve done and how far I’ve come. Sometimes it takes a day of not doing your best or skating your best to understand that there’s no regret when we do our best, and I’m doing the best that I can. If that makes me a great player and a great skater, then that’s great! If not, I don’t have any regrets. I’ve done my very, very best. That’s all I can ask of myself. So, I’m just going to keep doing the work. What else can I do?”
