i don't think you're ready for this jelly

Some days (actually LOTS of days) I'm pretty hard on myself. I ran 18 miles today, but I'm still beating myself up about it because it was really hot by 9:30 and I walked way more than I should have. It's very easy to forget how far I've come, I think more so for me than anyone.

From our spring 2005 trip to New Zealand, recently unearthed from the archives by Mr. Bump

It's important, every once in a while, to look back at the path and see how far you've come. Just as important as looking forward toward how far you have yet to go.

You look like an ad for a weight loss program. Seriously.

You. Are. Awesome.
Not only have you come so far, but you haven't rested on your laurels. You've come so far... and you continue to go farther (both literally and figuratively!). So be kind to yourself, because you're to be commended. You inspire me!
