Though this here blog of mine has been driven by the fact that I lost a lot of weight and changed my lifestyle over the course of the past few years, developing a new relationship with food that I’ve now been documenting for a while, I’ve never posted any Before or After type photos.
I guess mainly out of fear and discomfort of some kind. I spent the bulk (pardon the pun) of my young teenage years overweight and it was a period of my life when I was pretty uncomfortable and unhappy with myself.
And to be honest, looking at pictures of myself from that point still makes me pretty uncomfortable. I guess I just haven’t felt confident enough yet to face that image and … to what. Reveal it? Let it go? I’m not sure.
But when I was asked to participate in That’s Fit Blogging Down feature, where “Every week, we introduce you to bloggers who share their weight-loss journeys and hefty doses of inspiration with their readers,” I couldn’t say no.
So here’s a small dose of the “Before” and “After” Me:
One of these days I’d like to actually write up a more in-depth story of my weight loss… and face more of those “Before” pictures. Someday soon enough…
Thanks for reading :)
