Before Photos (are here!)
Saturday, May 05, 2012
Well, I bit the bullet. It wasn't easy but I took some photos and came to grips with posting them. I tried to post a range of photos, because even though all are from the past week, in some I look bigger than others. I don't want to distort my image as being huge, but also don't want to minimize it by posting only the "better" photos.
There's one that's, oh my god, a real eye opener. I didn't have the heart to put it on the cover of my spark page, but it's in the photos to remind me and keep me honest. I hope to post progress photos along the way. Hope, because I don't want to be presumptuous. I'm still taking this a day at a time. I haven't been fully tested yet. I'm still a spark newbie...naive. All has gone well my first couple of weeks, but life will challenge me at some point, and then we'll see what my spark is made of...I hope and I intend to keep coming back, immediately or as quickly as possible when I do get knocked off or down.
I intend to regain my natural, normal, healthy weight, to be beautiful, more outgoing, and ever more compassionate to the world, especially to others that suffer as we suffer---with body image, food addiction, and self-belief.
