I have been at this blogging business since October 2010. One thing I’ve tried to convey is the importance of self-acceptance. Love yourself no matter where you are at in your journey. Carry yourself with pride and celebrate your beauty every day.
With that being said, I’ve not posted pictures of myself.
I don’ t like seeing pictures of myself. And I am definitely NOT practicing what I preach.
The thing is, when I look in a mirror, mostly, I really like what I see. Then I see a picture and I say, where am I again? And who is that fat girl?
I’m fourteen months late, but here we go. Here is my before picture:
This photo was taken last night (August 13). Randy and I got all dressed up to go to one of my pseudo kid’s wedding. I figured if I was going to do a before picture, I might as well get a little more mileage out of the hair that I paid someone to put up for me.
Because I am so proud of my husband, here we are together. This is after a 117 lb weight loss for him:
Oh..and since this IS Rage Your Way Thin, I need an angry face, right?
My after pictures? Well…I would like to post a completely new set next February. My birthday present to myself will be pictures of me that I will feel better about. I want this to be true even if I don’t lose another ounce.
Oh. Wait. I DO have an after picture. It’s not the traditional after picture. This is the after drinking ALL night and then taking the bobby pins out and letting my hair down after the wedding. I think I’ll title this one the Wild Woman of Borneo.
