Day 10 of 30

For 30 days, I’m sharing a real photo, of my real body, every single day! It’s an experiment. I have no idea what it’ll do - but I heard a little voice when I laid my head on my pillow New Year’s Eve that said it was time to start showing up and stop hiding because of my body and my 50+ lbs weight gain.

My thoughts from day 10:

🦋 I can’t tell you ALL the photos I don’t have because I didn’t want to take a realistic look at my bod, or because I knew I would never post the photos as it wasn’t at a figure-friendly angle 🙄

🦋 I enjoy doing my hair and makeup BUT had gotten into a routine where face and hair got no attention because I’d waste so much time looking for the right* outfit * aka the one that would best hide my body

🦋 I’m loving applying lipstick and eyeliner in front of the mirror, in my undies, no shame - usually Wilhelm has some sort of ridiculous music on in the background so there’s often dancing, too

🦋 I KNOW for a fact I wouldn’t have been able to show up fully to the retreat I’m at right now if I hadn’t started this experiment before hand and now I can grow and learn without my body mindset gunk weighing me down

🦋 I’m taking better care of my bod in regards to putting on lotion, exfoliating etc now - I want to glow instead of hide

🦋 I’m sharing a room at the retreat I’m at, and got back to my room around 12:30pm... so I’m not stoked at the photo results tonight, they were hasty - but I need some sleep, so I’m working with what I got

🦋 I actually feel guilty that none of tonight’s photos are difficult for me to share - what does this mean?

🦋 Someone called me FAT (he capitalized it that way) on my Facebook post today

🦋 Someone reminded me that some people actually think my project a bit ridiculous because I’m not as heavy as others

🦋 A friend, and a woman I greatly admire, committed to joining in on one of my photos this weekend - she said it scares her, so that tells her she needs to do it

🦋 If you’re still reading this, tell yourself something you’re proud of yourself for accomplishing.
