I got this crazy email.... I've been thinking about it this week and wondering the best way to approach it. I'm all for the most honest approach any day.
I've always been real here. What you see is pretty much what you get. I share my post-chubby girl insecurities, the days that I feel absolutely amazing, and all the little things in between.
I think the most difficult part of sharing my life with all of you is writing the good, the bad, and the ugly. It's there for everyone to see. But I want to stay authentic to you and to myself. It would be an absolute lie if I didn't show you how my weight gain and loss have both influenced the pieces of my life.
I received an email last week from a person who is absolutely convinced I have photoshopped my pictures. (If that were true, I would have probably made myself look ten times better!)
For those of you who have been here a while, you have seen the changes over time. If you were here before I even began my weight loss journey, you will know how big I was.
(I also take a lot of iPhone pics. I'm not even sure you can actually doctor those babies.)
If you're new here, I can promise the weight loss is for real. You can look back in the archives of this blog. You can see the changes over time. I never doctored the "before" pics. Honestly, I'm still ashamed of them. Why would I chose to make them look even worse than they already did?
I understand 80 pounds is major, y'all. It feels major. But it isn't impossible.
