Living Life On Life's Terms(updated photos)

Sunday, September 08, 2013

I love to hide. I gain weight and I hide. I avoid people at all costs because of how ashamed I am. Unfortunately, I have been hiding most of my adult life.

I took a courage step today. I actually posted photos of myself to my Sparkpage ~ How I looked this summer (20 lbs higher then) and a bit of photo history of my sizes. This is the first time ever posting "fat" photos.

I usually avoid cameras or delete photos because I don't want to remember how I look. My weight swings have been drastic. Every time I get into an uncomfortable size, the shame has been so great that I hide from the world.

Today, I am Living Life On Life's Terms. I am not using food to escape. I exercised today and broke a sweat! I am blogging and posting photos so all of you "Sparkpeople" can see who I am. I am pushing shame out of my life.

No one has ever said, "Wow you gained a ton of weight!" Nor have they acknowledge the drastic swing up the scale several times throughout my life in any way. I guess people don't know what to say. Maybe they don't even notice?

What they think of me is none of my business! emoticon

I have escaped through food, or lack of , since I was a tweenie. (Back then, there was no such label.) Today, I face you with who I am and where I have come from.

I don't want to be hiding anymore. I won't hide anymore.

PSSSSST! AFTER KEEPING THE FAT PHOTOS ON THEIR, I JUST DON'T WANT TO ADMIT HOW I LOOK. SUCH SHAME…. I removed the fat photos….

    i think life is full of escapes. and we tent to uses them in way that makes all the problems worse. i tend to hide or try not to get attention for myself. Although there are times i still want to i have been trying to do new things or ust do simple things that i am too shy to do.
